About this mezcal

La Medida Madrecuishe is made with cultivated agave Madrecuishe. Though this agave is not typically cultivated for mezcal production, La Medida reports that it adapts well to cultivation and can withstand moderate droughts and frosts. It’s commonly used as a living fence around property or other crops. This agave is grown at 1,500 meters above sea level. It’s traditionally produced in San Luis Amatlán, Miahuatlán, Oaxaca.

La Medida Mezcal

Mezcales La Medida brings together more than 46 Oaxacan producers. Their mezcal is made in small palenques with over 450 years of tradition and culture. The brand is run by Julián Vidal Gómez Rodríguez, who began working with mezcal over 40 years ago. Throughout his career he has worked with brands like Monte Alban, Benevá, and Del Maguey. He focuses heavily on mezcal's mysticism and the traditional production methods that have been used for hundreds of years. Some of their mezcal is certified, while other releases go by "aguardiente de agave." Each batch is different. Check your bottles for details.

A mature and robust smoky mezcal with lots of spice and a peppery finish, reminiscent of being out in the woods on a cool morning

Papaya and vanilla on the nose. Starts dry and turns into soft green with hints of juniper
