About this mezcal
Matra Joven is made with maguey Espadin (agave Angustifolia) in Santiago Matatlan, Oaxaca. The agaves are cooked in an underground oven, crushed by tahona, and distilled in a copper alembic still.
Mezcal Matra arose from the need to preserve the tradition of the production of mezcal. The palenque (distillery) where this mezcal is made has reportedly been operating since 1845. The Matra brand was founded in 2011.
