Introducing La Medida Tepeztate, an exquisite 750ml bottle of mezcal crafted in the heart of Oaxaca, Mexico. Made with 100% Tepeztate (Agave marmorata), this mezcal embodies the rich heritage and craftsmanship of traditional mezcal production.

To create this exceptional spirit, the Tepeztate agave hearts are carefully cooked in a conical earthen oven, allowing the flavors to develop and flourish. Following the cooking process, the agave is crushed using a traditional stone tahona mill, ensuring that every drop of its essence is extracted.

The fermentation of La Medida Tepeztate takes place in open-air wooden tanks, allowing the mezcal to interact with the natural yeasts and absorb the unique characteristics of its environment. This natural fermentation process contributes to the mezcal's distinct flavor profile.

The final distillation is performed twice using copper pot stills, a time-honored technique that allows for the refinement and concentration of the mezcal's flavors. This careful distillation process captures the true essence of the Tepeztate agave, resulting in a mezcal of exceptional quality.

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.
