About this mezcal
Erstwhile Espadin Limited Edition 2021 was produced in Santa Maria Sola, Oaxaca produced by maestro mezcalero Juan Abel Quiroz Agustín. Maestro Juan Abel Quiroz Agustín prefers to go by “Abel.” The agave used in this mezcal are milled by hand and double distilled in clay pot stills that are traditional to the greater Sola de Vega region where this mezcal is made. Abel’s path to becoming a maestro mezcalero is somewhat non-traditional. While his grandfather was a mezcalero, Abel learned the majority of the mezcal production process from other local producers in his early 30’s, after returning from a brief sojourn in the United States and looking for a way to support his young family.
