About this mezcal

Gracias a Dios Reposado is made with agave Espadin. After distillation, it’s rested in American Oak barrels for 4 months. It has notes of wood polish and spicy oak, wild herbs and citrus. It’s balanced and fragrant, with earthy notes, good palate development, and an array of fruit and smoke, spice and controlled oak.

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.

A good mixer and a okay sipper. This mezcal has notes of honey, copper, smoke, orange peel, and butter. I like using this as a mixer because at 45% ABV the flavors don’t get “muddled” down in a cocktail. It’s good for spirit-forward cocktails like an old fashioned. Don’t see a batch number on the bottle but it has a real cork whereas the newer bottles have with a plastic top cork. For a few bucks more I’d recommend this over the espadin because the reposado aging masks some of the chemical notes found in Gracias a Dios mezcals.
