'Matatlan', Mezcal, Nuestra Soledad
Mezcal Nuestra Soledad is a celebration of the unique terroir and distillation traditions of six different, prominent distilling communities around the Valles Centrales region of Oaxaca, Mexico. Each palenque (distillery) crafts a distinctive mezcal from 100% Espadín agave, allowing the Nuestra Soledad lineup to be experienced as a virtual geographic tour of the varying terroir of six iconic mezcal-producing villages.

Dubbed the “Heart of Mezcal” in Oaxaca, Santiago Matatlán is a small community but major distilling town in the district of Tlacolula. Accounting for nearly 60% of the mezcal produced in the state, it’s truly earned the moniker. Mezcaleros who achieve notoriety in the town do so amid the stiffest competition in all of Mexico.
The Cortés family, of course, are among of the most famous of Matatlán’s maestros. The Espadín they use grows between 5,500 – 5,900 feet in a mountain canyon nearby, rich with incredible agave diversity, amongst wild Tepeztate, Tobalá, and Coyote, brimming with natural beauty. A benchmark example of the variety and the most significant distilling town in the state.
