About this mezcal

Los Javis Espadin is made with agave Espadin in Santiago Matatlan, Oaxaca. The agave used to make this mezcal were roasted in an underground oven, crushed by horse drawn tahona, fermented with open air yeasts, and double distilled in a copper pot still.

Los Javis Mezcal

Mezcal Los Javis is a family owned and operated distillery. Their palenque was built in Santiago Matatlan in 1979, and the Los Javis brand was founded in 2003 by Javier Mateo and his wife. The couple made a promise to plant and harvest the highest quality agave to create a mezcal of the finest variety. So fine that it would carry the family name, Javier, for three generations. Father, son, and grandson (all named Javier) began their journey when Javier Senior instilled in his family the quality and heritage of the mezcal making process.

Pleasant and mild – herbs, cucumber, and vaguely floral notes on the nose. Tastes rather thin and dry, with only a hint of sweetness, but finishes with a sudden peppery heat on the back of the throat that lingers for a while afterward. There is some smoke, but it’s buried pretty far back in the mix. I won’t call it unbalanced by any means, I certainly enjoy it. But those loving sweeter components and/or smoke, like me, will not find either in any abundance here.
