Dixeebe Mezcal

Dixeebe Mezcal (pronounced "dee-sh-bay") is a project from Asis Cortes and his father, Valentin Cortes. Their family has been producing mezcal in the Santiago Matatlan region for at least 180 years. The two of them are perhaps most well-known in Mexico and internationally for their previous work with Mezcal El Jolgorio and Nuestra Soledad. Asis and Valentin have now moved on from these two Casa Cortes brands and will be focusing on Dixeebe, along with Asis' brand in Durango, Origen Raiz. Asis and his father decided to launch Dixeebe as a way to reconnect with their past and support their traditions in the future.

According to the Asis, Dixeebe is a ceremony of honor of respect and love, the purest thanks to culture, thier tradition and their ancestors, a great veneration of liquid, a gift from the gods to men, and an offering from men to the gods. To take a deeper dive into the meaning of Dixeebe, check out the video Asis Cortes Explains Dixeebe.

Batch 2. Big and fresh aromas of spearmint, Sprite, and Arnold Palmers. The palate leads with a bit of sweet jalapeno spice, leading to notes of dried oregano, black pepper, and smoked sausage. This is big and bodacious the whole way through. Long finish.

Batch 2. Excellent Espadin! Fresh herbs like spearmint and tarragon with a delicious umami quality that was salty and savory like fish sauce without the fish.

Unmarked 1 liter bottle of 1st edition capon. Savory nose, grilled citrus, tropical fruits, can roast is present. Explosion of bright flavor some herbal notes and a subtle sweetness that moves to a spicy finish, which is moderately complex but hangs on for a long time. Heat is well balanced. Even at 52%, could drink this for days.
