About this mezcal

El Recuerdo de Oaxaca con Gusano is made with agave Espadin. This mezcal is not made at a traditional palenque, but instead at the largest, most modern distillery in all of Oaxaca. This distillery’s goal is to “create the cleanest mezcal ever produced,” using the most modern technology, machinery, and tequila-like production methods. The “con Gusano” in this refers to the fact that it has worms in the bottle.

El Recuerdo de Oaxaca Mezcal

El Recuerdo de Oaxaca Mezcal is produced by Casa Armando Guillermo Prieto, which also produces Zignum Mezcal. El Recuerdo is probably most well-known in the US due to it's affiliation with MMA Fighter, Jorge Masvidal, who is responsible for launching the brand in the US. Masvidal states he got into mezcal about five years ago. While he’ll shoot it if the time is right, he prefers to sip it while eating oranges slices dipped in sal de gusano.
