Espina Negra Tepeztate 750ML: A Rhapsody of Wild Agave

"The Wild Essence of Tepeztate Agave"

In the rugged terrains of Santa Ana del Rio, Oaxaca, grows the wild agave Tepeztate, the soul of Espina Negra Tepeztate. These agaves, maturing over an astounding 25 years, are a testament to nature's patience and resilience. Harvested from steep hillsides and cliffs, each bottle of Espina Negra Tepeztate is a rare treasure, offering a taste that is as unique and wild as its origin.  

"Artisanal Craftsmanship: From Earth to Bottle"

Espina Negra Tepeztate is a celebration of artisanal mezcal-making. Traditionally cooked in a pit oven, milled by tahona, and double distilled in a copper still, this mezcal embodies the purest form of craftsmanship. The Cruz Molina family's dedication over four generations ensures that every 750ML bottle preserves Oaxacan mezcal's authentic flavor and spirit.

"A Symphony of Flavors: Tasting Notes"

Espina Negra Tepeztate is not just a mezcal; it's an experience for the senses. It is undoubtedly an eccentric and exquisite choice with a fresh, sweet, and citrus flavor complemented by herbal and floral aromas. Each sip takes you on a journey through the heart of Oaxaca, offering a harmonious blend of nature's finest offerings.

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.
