La Medida Tobalá Chichicapam is an exceptional mezcal presented in a 750ml bottle produced in San Baltazar Chichicapam, Oaxaca, Mexico. With an alcohol content of 45% by volume, this mezcal is made exclusively from 100% Tobasiche, scientifically known as Agave karwinskii.

The Tobasiche agave hearts are meticulously cooked in an earthen oven to create this great mezcal, allowing them to develop their unique flavors. The cooked agave is then crushed using a tahona, a traditional stone mill, ensuring a careful extraction of the agave's essence. The resulting mash is fermented in open vats, where natural yeasts work their magic, imparting distinct characteristics to the mezcal. Finally, the fermented mash is double-distilled in a copper pot, refining the flavors and creating a smooth, refined spirit.

Tobalá agave is a wild variety that thrives in arid, shaded, high-altitude canyons. Known as the "Explorer Agave," it has small, broad leaves and typically takes 8 to 12 years to reach maturity. Tobalá is often revered as the "King of Agaves" in Mexico due to its exceptional qualities and esteemed reputation.

La Medida Tobalá Chichicapam captures the essence of this revered agave variety, showcasing its distinctive flavors and characteristics. Every sip of this mezcal is a journey into the rugged canyons of Oaxaca, where Tobalá flourishes and imparts its unique terroir to the spirit. Experience the regal elegance and complexity of La Medida Tobalá Chichicapam, a mezcal that pays homage to the extraordinary heritage of the King of Agaves.

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.
