Essence of Oaxaca: A Tribute in Every Sip

Mezcal Nacional 1931 Tobalá encapsulates the spirit and tradition of Oaxaca, Mexico, with its flagship mezcal. Crafted from the wild agave tobalá, a gem among agaves, this mezcal is a testament to the rich cultural heritage of its origin. The meticulous process overseen by Maestro Mezcalero Celso Martinez Lopez, utilizing traditional methods and a small copper still, ensures that each drop carries the essence of Oaxaca's lush, high-altitude canyons. This is not just a drink; it's a journey to the heart of Mexican craftsmanship.

Wild Agave Wonder: The Unique Tobalá 

Discover the unique sweetness and delicate flavors of the wild agave tobalá, the "Explorer Agave," with Mezcal Nacional 1931. Grown in Oaxaca's arid, shaded canyons, the tobalá takes 12-15 years to mature, contributing to the mezcal's complex and elegant profile. This small agave varietal, known for its broad, spade-like leaves, imparts flavors that range from floral to spiced, making Nacional 1931 a mezcal of unparalleled complexity and a worthy tribute to the land and its people.

Tradition Meets Excellence: The Art of Mezcal

Nacional 1931 stands as a pillar of traditional mezcal production, with each bottle embodying the excellence and dedication of generations. Double-distilled in a small copper still, this mezcal reflects the commitment to quality and the preservation of ancestral techniques. It's a celebration of the time-honored practices passed down through the ages, ensuring that each sip offers a taste of the mezcal's rich flavor and a connection to the legacy of Oaxacan mezcal production.

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.
