About this mezcal

Gracias a Dios Tepextate is made with 25-year old wild agave. Agave Tepextate has a lot of character in its aftertaste and deeply complex flavor. It has hints of minerals, grapefruit, and lime among slight touches of moist earth. This Mezcal has a relaxing taste that goes wonderfully with pastas and red meat.

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.

GAD-X-0379. I generally like Gracias a Dios mezcal. There’s definitely training wheels on this one, but it tastes great and the pricing is fantastic. This is way cheaper than other Tepeztate mezcals out there. It doesn’t have the same full flavor as others on the market, but it still has all of the typical characteristics and notes. It’s a great deal and it’s very easy to drink.

The lighter side of Agave Tepextate. It’s an easy drinker due to low ABV and simple flavor profile; somewhat metallic finish though.

Definitely a fan of this tepextate considering that it’s one of the most affordable and retains some of the classic tepextate flavors. It’s got a great tobacco spice and sweet finish. Overall very vegetal. Not quite as “wild” and complex as some of the high-end tepextates but it is enjoyable. This is a great one to share with mezcal newbies without emptying your bank account. At a bar my taster was more heavy tobacco whereas the bottle I picked up (GAD-X 0379) was less so, so likely a different batch but regardless a big fan of this mezcal.
