Mal Bien Tobaxiche 750ML - While it shares its name with other A. Karwinskii subvarieties found throughout Oaxaca, the tobaxiche agave found in Miahuatlán stands out for its larger size and sweeter flavors, distinguishing it as a unique expression.
Victor and Emanuel, representing the third and fourth generations of the Ramos', carry forward the tradition of mezcal production in the renowned Miahuatlán District of Oaxaca. This area is celebrated for its deep-rooted heritage in agave spirits, boasting a remarkable diversity of A. karwinskii sub-species such as bicuixe, madrecuixe, and tobaxiche. Their connection to the Cortes' is through Cleotilde, Victor's wife and Emanuel's mother, whose sister Cesilia is married to Felipe, forming a close-knit community of mezcal producers.
While Victor and Emanuel work hand in hand, the batch codes indicate their contributions. For example, batch codes ending in VFR denote that Victor performed the cuts and final composition, while batch codes ending in ER signify Emanuel's involvement in the cuts and composition process.
With each bottle of Mal Bien Tobaxiche, you experience the craftsmanship and dedication passed down through generations, a testament to the rich tapestry of mezcal tradition in the Miahuatlán District. Savour the unique character of this mezcal, crafted by the Ramos family, with unwavering passion and expertise.

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.
