Embody the Untamed Spirit of Mexico: Wahaka Madre-Cuishe Mezcal

It is said the aroma of the wild and rare Madre-Cuishe agave evokes the invigorating scent of freshly fallen desert rain. Wahaka has captured the vivid essence of Mexico's arid volcanic terroir in every artfully crafted bottle of this exceptional mezcal.

The Elusive Heart of the Lowlands

In the sun-baked lowlands of San Dionisio Ocotepec, the Madre-Cuishe agave is wild-harvested from nutrient-rich yellow soils after patiently maturing for 12 years. This emblematic regional varietal can only be tamed through traditional production methods honed over generations.

An Artisanal Journey of Fire and Time

After pit-roasting the mature piñas for 3-5 days over ocote wood, they are crushed using an ancient tahona millstone. Open-air fermentation of 10-12 days in pine vats allows only native yeasts to spark the transformation. Finally, double distillation in copper pot stills preserves every ethereal note.

The Untamed Soul of the Desert 

On the nose, zesty citrus and green herbaceous notes mingle with the smoky-mineral aroma of freshly dampened earth. The palate unfurls vibrant layers of stone fruit, jalapeño, and roasted agave that resolve into a dry, lingering finish with hints of wet limestone.

Each small-batch bottling encapsulates the indomitable spirit of Mexico's desert landscapes. Sip Wahaka Madre-Cuishe neat or in a premium cocktail to embrace the wild, untamed soul within. Salud!

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.
