Introducing La Medida Tobasiche Chichicapam, a premium 750 ml bottle of mezcal meticulously crafted in San Baltazar Chichicapam, Oaxaca, Mexico. With an alcohol content of 45% by volume, this mezcal offers an exquisite and unique drinking experience.

Made exclusively from 100% Tobasiche (Agave karwinskii), La Medida Tobasiche Chichicapam embodies the rich traditions of mezcal production. The journey begins with the careful cooking of the agave hearts in traditional earthen ovens, allowing the flavors to develop and intensify. The roasted agave is then crushed using a tahona, a large stone wheel, to extract its precious juices.

The fermentation process takes place in open vats, where natural yeasts work their magic, contributing to the mezcal's distinctive character. Following fermentation, the mezcal undergoes a double distillation process using a traditional copper pot still. This meticulous approach ensures that every drop of La Medida Tobasiche Chichicapam captures the true essence of the agave and the craftsmanship behind its creation.

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.
