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.

Machetazo Mezcal

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.

Great value from a great area, definitely not a waste of money. One of my favorites is from Chichicapam.

Vanilla sets up this low cost offering and although there’s nothing outstanding about this mezcal there’s also nothing to detract from the great value (under $30). One dimensional with a sweet/vanilla profile. If you’re looking for a value/well/cocktail/shot mezcal and don’t want to break the bank this is a winner. Starting to see it pop up at Whole Foods even and the rating takes into account the value.
