About this mezcal
El Silencio Joven is a blend made with maguey Mexicano, Tobasiche, and Espadin. El Silencio is yet another brand with mezcal engineered by master Mezcalero Pedro Hernandez. He makes some other fantastic mezcal for other brands as well. The maguey Mexicano, Tobasiche, and Espadin are all cooked, fermented, and distilled separately. After distillation, they’re blended together to make the final product. The Mexicano and Tobasiche are both only distilled once, while the Espadin is double-distilled. El Silencio Joven has aromas of sundried vegetables, leather, dried fruit, and sweet smoke. It tastes of white pepper, jasmine, and fennel, and it has a slightly charred finish.
El Silencio Mezcal
El Silencio is a Los Angeles-based craft mezcal label whose product is produced in San Baltazar Guelavila, Oaxaca by Pedro Hernández, a ninth-generation Maestro Mezcalero. As an organic Mezcal, they use only the finest and carefully selected 10-12 year old Espadin agaves. Their products are handmade in small batches. Like other artisanal Mezcals, El Silencio’s production does not involve any additives or industrial processes.
In April 2019, Constellation Brands took a minority stake in El Silencio. Constellation Brands is one of the largest beer companies in the United States; the company also has a significant stake in Canopy Growth, a publicly traded cannabis company.
