About this mezcal

Lalocura Tobasiche-Espadin is an ensamble of agave Tobasiche (Karwinskii) and Espadin (Angustifoloia Haw). This mezcal is made in the small town of Santa Catarina Minas, Oaxaca, which is home to some of the most well-renowned clay-pot distillers in all of Mexico. The agave used in this mezcal are cooked with encino wood in an underground pit oven, mashed by hand with mallets, fermented in cypress tanks using only natural airborne yeasts, and double distilled in small clay pots.

Lalocura Mezcal

Before starting Lalocura in 2014, Eduardo "Lalo" Ángeles spent years working as the fourth generation master mezcalero of his family’s brand Real Minero, where he combined a lifetime of working under his father, the late, great Don Lorenzo with a collegiate degree in agricultural engineering. Many Real Minero bottles from several years ago actually have Eduardo listed alongside his father as the master distiller. Lalocura's clay pot distilled mezcals have built a steady cult following over the last few years. People from around the world show up at the palenque in Santa Catarina Minas each day hoping to spend time listening to Lalo tell stories while they taste the 20+ expressions he has resting in glass at any given time. If you like clay pot distilled mezcal and you like Real Minero, it's highly recommended that you find some Lalocura.

Whoa! Almost a 5 star mezcal. Bursting with candy flavors and soft clay. It is earthy, balanced, along with buttery brown sugar. It has this fresh essence to it. Really great mezcal.. can’t wait to try more from Lalo!

Sweet, like bubble gum initially. Berries and pears on the palate. Finishes out with a hint of leather which I think is the clay distillation coming through. Enjoyed this a lot!

Smells fresh and full of berries. Sweet blueberries, strawberries, and red raspberries. The palate is full but not chaotic. There’s some clay flavors but this is mostly full of berries, wild apples, and unripe bananas. This is incredibly rich and candy-like with so much fullness in the body.
