About this mezcal

Mala Idea Espadin Capon is made with agave Espadin that has taken 10-12 years to mature. They use the word “capon” on the label of this Espadin to signify that the Espadin used for this mezcal was purposefully left in the ground for longer than others. This mezcal has scents of fresh lemon, grass seeds, and subtle smoked. This mezcal tastes of citrus and is dry in the mouth. Mala Idea Espadin Capon won the 2017 Double Gold Medal at the Las Vegas Global Spirit Awards.

Mala Idea Mezcal

Mala Idea, which translates to "Bad Idea" is named in celebration of everyone who follows their passions regardless of the risks and challenges they present. From semi-cultivated/wild Espadin to the truly wild agaves such as Tobala, Cuishe, and Tepextate, Mala Idea Mezcal is handcrafted to ensure the absolute best quality. All their agave is cooked in a stone horno, fermented in open-air, crushed by tahona, and distilled in copper stills.

  • Overall:

Compared to other espadins for the same price, I can not recommend this one. It has a bit of sweetness, but it’s very harsh. It may be better as a mixer.
