About this mezcal
Fidencio ‘Single Cask Nation’ Reposado is a cask bottling, distilled in October 2016 by Maestro Mezcalero Enrique Jiménez with maguey Espadin (agave Angustifolia) in Santiago Matatlan, Oaxaca. After distillation, it spent 10 months resting in a first fill bourbon barrel from Wild Turkey. It was bottled at cask strength in August of 2017 at 53.4% ABV. This cask #2931 yielded 252 bottles for the Single Cask Nation portfolio.
Fidencio Mezcal has four generations of knowledge and they use their own estate grown agave. Fabrica de Amigo del Mezcal is the name of the distillery/palenque that produces Fidencio Mezcal. Fidencio Jiménez, the namesake for Fidencio Mezcal, started making mezcal over 100 years ago when he moved to Santiago Matatlán, Oaxaca. He began to live the life of a Mezcalero, learning from peers and by trial-and-error. He worked closely with his son Enrique to perfect their craft and to pass down their knowledge to the next generation. In those days, even the equipment was from the land: clay pots for fermentation, distillation & storage and river reeds for tubing.
For more information on the Jimenez family, read The Story of Isaac Jimenez by Alvin Starkman (owner of Mezcal Educational Excursions of Oaxaca). Fidencio is made by the same family that produces El Buho. Due to the artisanal nature of their mezcal, the ABV may vary slightly between batches.
