Madrecuixe / Bicuixe / Espadín, 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 thrilling ensemble from a famed palenque in the southern district of Miahuatlan, this mash up of two Agave Karwinskii is stretched to completion with a minimal Agave Angustifolia backbone. It’s unusual to see a blend that features more wild varieties than Espadín, but the cultivated agave here is no afterthought. Crisp and clean and lively, the three agave act in balanced harmony to give full and distinct structure to the spirit. The blends from Mezcalosfera are consistently some of the finest mezcales we are lucky enough to taste. A small and thrilling batch of only 370 liters; don’t sleep on this one.
