The Essence of Lachigui: An Oaxacan Mezcal Masterpiece

Discover the exceptional Mezcal from Lachigui, Miahutlán, Oaxaca, crafted by the renowned Maestro Mezcalero "Tio" Pedro Vasquez. This mezcal is a true representation of the rich heritage and meticulous craftsmanship that defines the spirit of Oaxaca.

  • Journey to Lachigui: Embark on an aromatic journey to Lachigui, nestled deep in the mountains of Oaxaca's southern district, Miahuatlán. Here, "Tio" Pedro Vasquez, a master of his craft, transforms wild and cultivated agave into mezcal that transcends ordinary spirits. The journey to his secluded rancho palenque is an adventure, a path to discovering some of the world's most extraordinary mezcals.
  • Artisanal Creation: Each bottle of this mezcal is a testament to traditional methods and the Maestro's dedication. Made from 100% Espadín (Agave angustifolia), it is cooked in a conical earthen oven, ensuring a deep and authentic flavor. The agave is then meticulously milled using a small mechanical grinder and by hand with an ax & mallet, a labor of love that infuses the spirit with a unique character.
  • A Symphony of Flavors: This mezcal boasts an exquisite flavor profile, high-toned with notes of freshly cut grass, mint, and underripe banana, followed by rich aromatics of cedar wood and cigar box. The palate reveals layers of green pepper, wet soil, and fresh cherries, complemented by bright, citric acidity. The long, earthy finish leaves a memorable impression, making each sip a luxurious experience.

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.
