About Erstwhile Tepeztate-Tobalá Ensamble Mezcal

Their very first release was the Erstwhile Mezcal Espadín from Rancho Blanco Güilá. While the founders were scouring the Oaxaca countryside for a flagship Espadín Mezcal, they came upon master mezcalero Silverio García Luis. They immediately knew they'd found what they were looking for. Complex, elegant, balanced, as well as versatile and good value, it was the perfect fit for their first shipment from Mexico. Since then they have been partnering with some of the finest traditional mezcal producers.

The Erstwhile Tepeztate-Tobalá Ensamble Mezcal is a blend of two different mezcals, one made with tepeztate and the other with tobalá agaves. The first brings green and vegetal notes, while the other takes care of the sweetness, fruit, and a full body. Produced by Juan Hernández Méndez & Hortensia Hernández Martínez, this small-batch mezcal is made from naturally-fermented agaves that are distilled using traditional methods and bottled at 88 proof.

About Mezcal

Mezcal is a distilled spirit made from roasted agave plants between two days and two weeks, which gives it a distinct smokey flavor.
What scotch is for whisk(e)y, mezcal is for tequila.

It can be made from different types of agave in different parts of Mexico, but most of it (60%) comes from the state of Oaxaca. Mezcal offers a large diversity of flavor profiles and ranges between 40 and 55% ABV.

The two drastically different agaves each contribute to the overall profile. First there are the green, vegetal, and pear notes of the tepeztate, followed by the sweetness, fruitiness, and rounder body of the tobalá. The two complement each other beautifully with green pepper, a minerality, and smooth caramel notes, along with a gentle smokiness.
