Rufina Maguey Espadín 750ml
Rufina Maguey Espadín is a high-quality agave spirit from Espadín agave plants harvested at 7-8 years. It undergoes a traditional production process, including extraction with a machete and shredder, horizontal distillation in a copper still pot, and cooking in a conical oven with various kinds of wood. Fermentation uses native yeast and water from basins and cypress wood vats.
Rufina's final product is a testament to the dedication and craftsmanship of the community, with each small batch (ranging from 120 to 250 liters) reflecting the unique qualities of the agave and the season in which it was distilled. Everything is produced, bottled, and shipped directly from San Luis Amatlan, Oaxaca, ensuring the integrity and exceptional quality of each Rufina's artisanal spirits sip.
Every bottle includes a scapular, providing divine protection for those who may indulge a little too much.
- The ABV is 47.67%, and the tasting notes include white pepper, cucumber, and cypress.
- This artisanal spirit is packaged in a 750ml bottle sealed with a Portuguese cork and natural bee wax.
- Crafted by Rufina Maguey, it represents a small-batch production with a batch number of CALl-0010.
Made in Oaxaca with Espadín agave, it has an excellent flavor reminiscent of the sun, earth, and a smoky touch.

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.
