About this mezcal
La Nina del Mezcal Espadin is made with estate-grown agave Espadin in Santiago Matatlan. This traditionally produced mezcal is bottled at around 48% ABV, but the exact alcohol content will vary by batch. Unlike the Primario, this mezcal is meant to be sipped neat. It has a nice balance of sweet and spice on the palate.
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.

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.
