About this mezcal
CLAN55 is a handcrafted agave Espadin mezcal produced once a year in Santa María Quiegolani, Oaxaca. Production occurs mostly between the month of February and April when the agaves reach maturity after 8 years. Given the strong ABV (alcohol by volume) of 55%, the batches are inherently “small batch” since the spirit isn’t being diluted with water; adding water increases a batch size. This mezcal has intensive herbal and flowery notes.
Since 2017, CLAN55 decided to eliminate the name of a single person as their mezcalero. The makers consider every single person involved in the process important to the result of each batch.
Mezcal CLAN55 regularly produces limited editions which do not exceed 100 liters in addition to their handcrafted agave Espadin mezcal. Those editions are made entirely of wild agaves, with the age of the plants between 12-30 years.
