Introducing La Medida Espadín Chichicapam, a remarkable 750ml bottle of mezcal produced in the enchanting region of San Baltazar Chichicapam, Oaxaca, Mexico. Crafted with utmost care and dedication, this mezcal embodies the essence of Oaxacan tradition and the artistry of its mezcaleros.

La Medida Espadín Chichicapam is made exclusively from 100% Tobasiche (Agave karwinskii), a revered agave variety known for its exceptional quality and distinctive flavor profile. This mezcal showcases the true essence of Tobasiche, capturing its unique characteristics and delivering an extraordinary drinking experience.

The production of La Medida Espadín Chichicapam begins with the careful cooking of the agave hearts in traditional earthen ovens, allowing the flavors to develop and harmonize. Milled using a tahona, a large stone wheel, the agave is crushed to extract its precious juices, ensuring that the mezcal captures the full essence of the Tobasiche agave.

Fermentation occurs in open vats, where the mezcal interacts with natural yeasts, contributing to its complex and nuanced flavor profile. The mezcal is then distilled twice in copper pot stills, allowing for the refinement and concentration of flavors, resulting in exceptional quality and character.

La Medida is a collaborative brand that brings together over 46 Oaxacan producers, including the expertise of Julián Vidal Gómez Rodríguez, who has dedicated over 40 years to working with mezcal. This collective effort ensures that each La Medida Espadín Chichicapam bottle represents the finest craftsmanship and passion of Oaxaca's mezcal community.

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.
