About this mezcal

Hedonistas de la Fe Tepeztate is produced by maestro mezcalero Gerardo “Kaín” Santiago Hernandez in Santiago Matatlan, Oaxaca. Maestro Kaín is a fourth-generation mezcalero raised in Matatlan. This mezcal is made with Agave marmorata that can take between 20-22 years to reach maturity. Once harvested, the agaves are cooked in an underground pit oven, milled by tahona, fermented in wooden vats with open air yeasts, and double distilled in copper alembic stills. The water for the palenque is provided by the family well, which has been in use for over sixty years, tapping into a pristine aquifer below. This pure, clean water is soft, with low minerality, and allows maestro Kaín to draw out the best flavors of the agave.

Above-average Tepeztate from Matatlán, Oaxaca. There is a bit of that Jabali dry soapiness with vegetal green spice. Leaning hot for 46%. Retail is $200 which seems a bit high – for that price range I might look elsewhere for a top-tier Tepeztate. Overall, good Tepeztates are more rare than common these days.
