Mezcal Mexicano, 'Chichicapam', La Medida

La Medida Mezcal (“the measure”) is a collaborative brand created by Julián Vidal Gómez Rodríguez, who has been one of the unsung icons of Oaxacan mezcal for over 40 years. Alongside his son, Julián works in concert with several highly regarded mezcaleros around Oaxaca (including the enigmatic legend Don Celso, who co-founded the brand) to showcase a diverse range of wild and cultivated single-varietal bottlings.

Tasting Notes

Berta Vasquez is one of mezcal’s most iconic maestra mezcaleras. In the famed distilling town of San Baltazar Chichicapam, Berta was both born and married into the tradition; her mezcales are widely acknowledged as some of the finest in the state.

Berta’s take on Mexicano (Agave rhodacantha) is particularly spectacular—after the spirit opens up with some oxygen, it becomes both lively and grounded. Aromas of cilantro, citrus zest, peach skin, plum, and blossoming flowers give way to a palate dense with waves of wax & clay, sun dried tomato, dry lawn clippings, and tobacco leaf. A real privilege to enjoy.
