De Matachines

Matachines are ceremonial religious dancers throughout Central/South America and through Mexico who have been performing since the 17th century. Some of these traditional dance troupes have existed for hundreds of years and continue their traditions today. The De Matachines brand works with producers in San Luis Potosi, Guanajuato, and Zacatecas where some of the largest producers of agave spirits in the 19th century still produce today. Their traditions and history may be less widely known but are just as rich and deep as those found anywhere else in Mexico.

Batch: PEN001
Like the other expression from this brand, this tastes completely different than any Mezcal I’ve had out of San Luis Potosi. Both of the expressions from this brand make me think of some thing that would come from the brand Lamata. Totally unique stuff! This is dusty and earthy and leathery. With flavors of dust storm, leather saddle, wet decomposing leaves on a forest floor, black licorice. Unfortunately I only had a 1 ounce sample and I was still tasting new stuff when it ran out. Might just have to pick up a bottle of this one. One thing I know for sure, I need to get out to San Luis Potosi.
