Origen Raiz Espadín Chacaleño is a mezcal made with maguey Chacaleño (Agave angustifolia) by Carlos Angulo Rios in El Platanar, Durango. This mezcal has a unique flavor profile that varies greatly from the maguey Espadin commonly found in Oaxaca. The Consejo Regulador del Mezcal that certifies mezcal required the brand to add Espadín to the title of this release, but this name is not used locally. Instead, the local producers refer to this as maguey Chacaleño.

Origen Raiz del Espiritu Mezcal is a partnership between the Saravia of Durango and the Cortés of Oaxaca. Their shared passion united them for their culture and respect for their heritage. Asis Cortés, one of the brand owners, is well known for his other mezcal projects, including Mezcal Dixeebe, El Jolgorio, Nuestra Soledad, and Agave de Cortes. The family also operates a mezcaleria named Mezcalogia, and Asis has a restaurant named Puro Burro in Oaxaca City.

Tasting Notes

  • Aromas of sandalwood, cedar, red Tootsie Pops, artificial cherry scent, and spearmint.
  • The palate is almost musty, with a bit of cracked pepper, shellfish, and new leather.

This mezcal is a testament to the families' commitment to producing unique and high-quality mezcal that honors their cultural heritage and region's natural beauty.

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.
