About this destilado de agave

La Niña del Mezcal Cirial is made with maguey Cirial, which is a Karwinskii agave similar to Cuishe or Madre-cuishe. This mezcal is traditionally produced in a stone horno and fermented in pine vats. It is double-distilled in copper by Fulgencio Hernandez in Santa Maria Zoquitlan, Oaxaca.

La Niña del Mezcal

Cecilia Rios Murrieta is a freelance writer and founded La Niña del Mezcal, a company that promotes awareness of artisan mezcal in order to preserve the traditional production processes and position it as a premium spirit in international markets. Her passion for mezcal led her to pursue certification as a Mezcalier, and later to establish one of the first blogs about Mezcal and the culture that surrounds it. For years, she served as the proud owner of this Mezcal line from Oaxaca and she shared her knowledge about the spirit through tastings and pairings, while creating alliances with other Mexican artisanal producers. Listen to Cecelia talk about her mezcal here: KCRW’s Good Food – Cecilia Rios Murrieta: La Niña del Mezcal .

In March 2018, founder Cecilia Rios Murrieta retired from the La Niña brand to work on other projects, including launching a new spirits brand, Ōme Spirits.

Smells like fresh cut wood. Tutti Frutti. Great representation of a Karwinskii. Dark fruit and cigarrillos. Interesting that this isn’t a certified mezcal. Bottle 248/300. Batch C001.
