About this mezcal

Ánimas Espadin y Papalometl Ensamble is produced by Luis Angeles Reyes in Santiago Matatlán, Tlacolula, Oaxaca. This mezcal is made using agaves Papalometl (Cupreata) and Espadín (Angustifolia Haw) which are harvested after 9 and 7 years respectively. After harvest, the agaves cooked in a conical ground oven, milled with a stone tahona, fermented in wooden vats, and double distilled in copper pot stills. This mezcal has sweet aromas that carry a subtle minerality. Its flavors are fresh and herbal with a dry finish. Earlier batches of Ánimas Espadin y Papalometl were produced by Germán González in Silacayoapam, Oaxaca, an area in the western part of the state that borders the state of Puebla.

Ánimas Mezcal

Mezcal Ánimas is an offering from their master mezcalero to summon Mayahuel, the female deity of maguey. In this ritual the spirits of the agave plant give life to the sacred rabbits that, as a liquid spirit, allow us to enter a mystical world.

Lot: 0719A. When I was a kid my grandparents kept a glass bowl filled with Kraft caramel squares on the coffee table. When no one was looking I would grab handfuls of them and shove as many as I could fit into my mouth then slowly chew and let all that glorious caramel juice slide down my throat. Yum. This Mezcal is like that. Kraft caramel squares, dark Muscovado sugar, allspice, mahogany, and spearmint. I first had this Mezcal at Pujol Omakase Taco Bar in Mexico City as part of their Mezcal Taco pairing and it was my second favorite of the night. Interestingly when I first opened the bottle, the caramel notes were subtle but after sitting in my glass for awhile they got stronger and stronger.
