About this mezcal

Gracias a Dios Mango is made with agave Espadin in Santiago Matatlan, Oaxaca by maestro mezcalero Oscar Hernandez. As the name of this mezcal indicates, mango is added to the distillate between the first and second distillation. The mangos used in this mezcal were grown on the coast of Oaxaca, where they ripen in the late spring and early summer.

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.

Decent mango flavor, not perceptible at all, but this is not a flavored mezcal, just have a little bit of flavor

I loved the idea of this, and as I worked through my bottle I kinda wondered when that mango would show up in force, and it just never came. This isnt bad, but its not doing anything crazy for me, and each time I had it I sort of wound up just wishing I had grabbed the Espadin instead.

Getting more of a dried mango vibe versus fresh mango. The overall profile is dry but it is decent. There is a lot of charred fruit with soft leather and smoke.
