Los Vecinos Espadin Mezcal
Made as the result of a partnership between Sazerac and Casa San Matias. The mezcals are all are produced in small batches by a co-op of 10 master mezcaleros from palanques in the Valles Centrales of Oaxaca. They distill in small batches using time-honored methods passed down by their ancestors. Utilizing locally grown and hand-harvested agave, the sutlry smoky sweetness is reached after days of slow roasting agave hearts underground. The pinas are crushed using a stone molino, then naturally fermented in wooden vats, and finally, double distilled using a copper pot still.
