About this mezcal
Ánimas Espadin has been produced by a few different mezcaleros in Santiago Matatlán and San Juan del Rio, Oaxaca. The agaves are harvested after 8-10 years and cooked in a conical ground oven, milled with a tahona, fermented in wooden vats, and double distilled in copper pot stills.
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.
