About this mezcal
Cuish Espadín Capón was distilled in 2004 and stored in stainless steel for 15 years. This mezcal was distilled by Jose Santiago in Santiago Matatlan, Oaxaca, Mexico. Jose comes from a long line of mezcal producers in Matatlan. Zapoteco is his first language and is spoken by most residents of the town. The Maguey Espadin (Agave angustifolia) plants were left Capón for over a year before being harvested. The harvested agaves were cooked in an underground stone-lined oven, milled by a horse-drawn tahona, naturally fermented in Montezuma Cypress vats, and twice distilled in copper pots. Lot number: CSH-04.
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.
