About this mezcal

Gracias a Dios Madre Cuishe is made with Maguey Madre Cuishe (Agave Karwinskii) in Santiago Matatlan, Oaxaca. The agave used in this mezcal took approximately 13 years to reach maturity and were harvested from the San Pedro Mixtepec region of Oaxaca. The agaves were cooked in an underground pit oven, fermented in pine-wood tubs, and double distilled in copper. This mezcal is earthy and herbal, smokey with notes of caramelized sugar.

Gracias a Dios Mezcal

The team behind Gracias a Dios Mezcal opened a mezcalería in Querétaro, México in 2010. After two years of touring around Mexico in search of mezcal, they met mezcalero Oscar Hernández and were impressed by his mezcal. They decided to create a brand with Oscar and make him an equal partner. Oscar learned how to distill from his mother whose nickname is “La Jefa”.

Aside from a few special releases, Gracias a Dios is made in Santiago Matatlan, Oaxaca. It is 100% artisanal, handmade with piñas from Espadín agave and other varieties, ground and fermented in their own palenque in Santiago Matatlán, and distilled in copper by maestro mezcalero Oscar Hernández Santiago. Their Karwinskii agaves are shredded mechanically, due to the toughness of their fibers, and then tahona-crushed afterwards. All other agave used at this palenque are crushed by horse-drawn tahona only.

Very floral and tropical!! Perfume, jasmine, mango, kiwi, and fresh basil. There’s something metallic that reminds me of copper coated pennies. I enjoyed this one.
