About this mezcal

La Nina del Mezcal Primario is made with agave Espadin in Santiago Matatlan. It has citric notes with a hint of green apple and smoke.  It’s bottled at 40% ABV in order to make it a good fit for mixed drinks. Though this mezcal is made for cocktails it’s still made in small batches of about 2,000 litres each.

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.
