About this mezcal
Machetazo Espadin is made with agave Espadin in the state of Oaxaca, Mexico. Espadin is the mostly commonly used agave in Oaxaca as it’s more resistant to weather and pests, and it can also be more easily cultivated in comparison to other agave. That said, the agave Espadin used by Machetazo still take 8-12 years to reach maturity. This mezcal has subtle floral notes with a light spicy finish.
Mezcal Machetazo follows traditional mezcal production processes that have been passed down from generation to generation. The brand offers different varieties of mezcal that are produced in three different states in Mexico: Guerrero, Oaxaca and San Luis Potosí. The name Machetazo symbolizes the complexity and labor of the mezcal production process. With a swing of the machete or machetazo, their mezcaleros mark the beginning of the adventure behind the making of this mystical spirit.
