Introducing La Medida Bicuishe, a captivating 750ml bottle of mezcal that embodies the unique qualities of the Bicuishe subspecies of the Agave karwinskii plant. Harvested from the wild at an impressive altitude of 1,700 meters above sea level, this mezcal represents a true expression of the terroir and natural environment in which it thrives.

The Bicuishe agave, renowned for its distinctive characteristics, takes an impressive 9-10 years to reach maturity, resulting in a mezcal of exceptional quality and complexity. Each step of the production process is carefully orchestrated to capture the essence of this remarkable agave.

La Medida Bicuishe is crafted in the picturesque region of Miahuatlán, Oaxaca, where the mezcal tradition runs deep. The agave hearts are cooked in a conical earthen oven, allowing the flavors to develop and intensify. To extract the precious juices, the cooked agave is crushed using a traditional stone tahona mill, a process often accompanied by the rhythmic motion of a bull drawing the mill, honoring time-honored methods of mezcal production.

Following the crushing process, the agave juice is fermented in open-air wooden tanks, allowing natural yeasts to work their magic and contribute to the mezcal's distinctive character. This natural fermentation process imbues La Medida Bicuishe with its unique flavor profile.

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.
