El Mero Mero Espadín Mezcal 750ml
Introducing El Mero Mero Espadín, a premium mezcal made with agave Espadin in San Dionisio Ocotopec, Oaxaca. This region is known for its very little rainfall, which keeps the agave plants growing low to the ground, similar to grapes. This stresses the plants and forces them to create more sugar, creating a unique and flavorful mezcal.
The agave used in this mezcal is tahona crushed, fermented in Encino Oak tubs, and double distilled in copper, resulting in a smooth and refined taste. The proofing process of this spirit uses no water, only the heads, and tails of the distillate, ensuring the highest quality and purity.
El Mero Mero Espadin has notes of herbal smoke, wood resin, earthy minerals, and a hint of peppery spice, creating a complex and balanced flavor profile. A typical batch of this mezcal is around 500-800 bottles, making it a rare and exclusive find.
El Mero Mero is a brand deeply committed to quality and sustainability. Mezcalero Justino Garcia Cruz oversees all production, and the brand's bottle label is designed by Carlos Zerpa, one of the most important Latin American contemporary artists. The surrounding mezcaleros are also starting to cultivate agave Tobala and Tepextate, promoting more sustainable production practices.
- El Mero Mero Espadin is a clean mezcal with a grassy nose and a palate of rock candy sugar, anise, black licorice, and bitter flower stems.
- The anise enters the finish and mingles with the smoke, leaving a comforting oatmeal note in the aftertaste.
Overall, El Mero Mero Espadín is an exceptional and exclusive mezcal that offers a unique and memorable experience.

What is the difference between Tequila & Mezcal?
Tequila is a type of mezcal, much like how scotch and bourbon are types of whiskey.
Tequila and mezcal are both types of agave-based spirits that are popular in Mexico, but there are some key differences between the two. Tequila is made exclusively from the blue agave plant, which is primarily grown in the area surrounding the city of Tequila, about 40 miles northwest of Guadalajara. Mezcal, on the other hand, can be made from any type of agave plant, and is often made using traditional, labor-intensive methods.
One of the most noticeable differences between tequila and mezcal is their flavor. Tequila is typically smooth and subtle, with hints of fruit and spices, while mezcal has a more complex, smoky flavor that comes from the roasting of the agave hearts before they are fermented and distilled.
Another difference between the two spirits is their production process. Tequila is typically made using modern industrial methods, while mezcal is often produced using traditional techniques that have been passed down for generations. This can give mezcal a more authentic, artisanal character.
In general, tequila is considered to be a more refined and sophisticated spirit, while mezcal is often viewed as a more rustic and traditional drink. Both are popular in Mexico and are enjoyed around the world, so the best way to decide which one you like is to try them both and see which one suits your tastes.
