About Paquera Espadin & Barril Mezcal Artesanal (200mL)
Paquera Mezcal is an artisanal spirit that is co-op grown and produced, 100% sustainable, contains no additives, and is gluten-free. The award-winning mezcal is crafted by a co-op in San Miguel Ejutla, Oaxaca, employing time-tested practices that were perfected over generations by passionate family artisans. The goal is to give back to the community, contributing resources to the Union de Productores Agropecuarios del Distrito de Ejutla de Crespo, a coalition of palenques that was formed in order to work towards the common goal of growing their small enterprises.
There are 3 expressions in the Paquera lineup: the 100% Espadin Mezcal, the 100% Barril Mezcal, and an Ensemble that combines both. The agaves are cooked in underground ovens, crushed by a horse-drawn tahona mill, then left to ferment in awewete wood barrels that are made locally, while the double distillation is done in small batches in copper stills. This ensures that the final product offers a balanced and complex drinking experience. Paquera Espadin & Barril is an ensamble mezcal, meaning that it's crafted with 80% espadin agaves and 20% barril agaves. Crafted to be as versatile as possible, it's a delicious sipper that serves as a great premium cocktail ingredient. Spicy, fruity, and smoky, it's an elegant expression that has won a Gold Medal from the Tasting Panel Magazine.
