The Exquisite Tradition of Santiago Matatlán Mezcal Delve into the heart of Oaxacan mezcal tradition with the exceptional Mezcal from Santiago Matatlán, crafted by the skilled hands of Maestro Mezcalero Gregorio Hernandez. This mezcal is not just a drink; it represents a rich cultural heritage and meticulous artisanal process.

  • Santiago Matatlán: The Heart of Mezcal: Santiago Matatlán, known as the "Heart of Mezcal" in Oaxaca, is a hub of mezcal distillation, rich in history and tradition. In this small yet significant town, the Cortés family and other maestros create mezcales that are quality benchmarks, especially for the Espadín variety. This mezcal from Matatlán is a shining example of the region's deep-rooted expertise in mezcal production.
  • Crafting Perfection with Maestro Gregorio Hernandez: Under the guidance of Maestro Mezcalero Gregorio Hernandez, this mezcal is produced using 100% Espadín agave, grown at elevations exceeding 5,500 feet. This high-altitude cultivation results in an agave with concentrated flavors, essential for creating a mezcal of unparalleled depth and complexity. 
  • A Symphony of Traditional Methods: The agave for this mezcal is cooked in a conical earthen oven, imparting a unique smoky flavor. It's then milled using a horse-driven stone tahona, blending tradition with the natural elements. The open-air wooden tank fermentation and double distillation in a traditional copper pot still at 47% ABV ensures that every bottle encapsulates the spirit of Santiago Matatlán.

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.
