This unaged (Joven) Mezcal is produced the village of Santiago Matatlan, famed for its long history of Mezcal production. Made using Espadin Agave, Quiquiriqui Matatlan is a classic “house style” mezcal. It has a smooth taste with distinct roasted agave flavours and a peppery finish that is characteristic with the Espadin agave. The agave are locally harvested and traditionally roasted in fire pits, crushed using a Tahona (stone wheel) then fermented outside in oak vats relying on natural airborne
yeasts. The final process is a double distillation in small copper stills resulting in a full flavoured mezcal that is perfect as a house pour or for cocktails.
Agave type: Espadin
