About this mezcal
Erstwhile Espadin Mezcal is crafted by master mezcalero Silverio García Luis in Rancho Blanco Güilá, Santiago Matatlán, Oaxaca. This mezcal is naturally fermented in wood vats in open-air and distilled in copper pots. Bathes were produced in August 2017, March 2018, and May 2018 yielding 1447, 1197, and 997 liters respectively. This mezcal has notes of butterscotch, banana, roasted agave and black tea. The finish lingers, with notes of ash and soft smoke on the palate.
Erstwhile Mezcal is a Brooklyn-based mezcal brand specializing in small-batch artisanal and ancestral mezcal. It was founded in 2017 by Yuan Ji (lawyer-turned-empresaria) and Kevin J. Brown (antiquarian map expert and Owner of Geographicus Rare Antique Maps). Their mission is to discover, curate, and connect both connoisseurs and novices with small-batch mezcal of the highest caliber. The team behind Erstwhile Mezcal is committed to mezcal education, transparency, sustainability and fair trade. Erstwhile Mezcal is a woman-owned business that supports fellow women in mezcal production. The first batches of Erstwhile Mezcal arrived in New York and California in the fall of 2018.
In the US, Erstwhile Mezcal can be purchased directly from their online store.
