About this mezcal
This exported release of Mezcales Cuish Ensamble was produced in September 2017 by José Santiago using maguey Espadin and maguey Cuish in Santiago Matatlán, Oaxaca. The agaves are cooked in an underground over and then crushed using a horse-drawn tahona. Next, it is fermented with well water in and native wild yeast in Montezuma cypress vats. Lastly, it is distilled twice in a copper still. The final distillate is adjusted using twice puntas and colas.
Mezcales Cuish is made up of rural producers that are dedicated to the production and commercialization of traditional Oaxacan mezcal from different regions and agave varieties.
For many years, Mezcales Cuish has operated a mezcaleria in Oaxaca City a few blocks southwest of Mercado Benito Juarez. A second location was opened in Centro, Oaxaca. In 2019, the brand began exporting to the United States. Mezcal Reviews lists a mix of their exported releases along with Oaxaca releases requested by website members.
