About this mezcal

Madre Clay Pot Ensamble is a limited release made with maguey Espadin and Cuishe. This Ancestral limited release rescues a García family tradition that had been forgotten for over forty years—distilling in clay pots. Maestro mezcalero Silverio Garcia typically distills in copper pot stills, however this batch was produced as a throwback to the distillation that his father used to do with clay pots in the 1960s and 1970s.

The softness and texture of the clay pot is very evident. The flavor is refined by the clay, evidencing the classic cuishe flavors but tempered by the espadin. Very drinkable and smooth, a bottle that could go very quickly!
