About this mezcal
Ánimas Espadin is produced by mezcalero Luis Angeles Reyes in Santiago Matatlán, Tlacolula, Oaxaca using 100% agave Espadin. The agaves are harvested after 8 years and cooked in a conical ground oven, milled with a tahona, fermented in wooden vats, and double distilled in copper pot stills. This mezcal has aromas of sweet cooked agave. It’s flavors are sweet and herbal with smoky finish. Earlier batches of Ánimas Espadin were produced by mezcalero Leoncio Santiago Hernandez.
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.
