Espadín con Café, Mezcalosfera

Mezcalosfera is the imprint for all exports from the legendary Oaxaca City mezcal library, Mezcaloteca. Each release is small and rare; a carefully selected expression from an iconic mezcalero within the community of Miahuatlán. The mezcals from the maestros in Miahuatlán are unique in their flavor profile due to the high minerality of the limestone found in the soil, as well as the high concentration of lime in the water supply. Both contribute to the marked characteristics of mezcal from this region of Oaxaca. The mezcals here are traditionally made: cooked underground, milled by oxen-pulled Tahona, open-air fermented, and distilled with small, copper pot stills that have a refrescadera on top—a feature that is typically only found in Miahuatlán and Ejutla.

Tasting Notes

A batch of 300 liters. This mezcal, produced by Maestro Mezcalero Margarito Cortés, is made from Espadín, with coffee beans added to the second distillation. The result is a beautifully nuanced distillate exhibiting freshly baked tortilla on the nose, and a dusty, charcoal-forward mid-palate. Delicate notes of coffee fruit reveal themselves on the long finish. 47.11% ABV
