About this mezcal

Mezcalosfera Tobala/Madrecuixe was distilled by Master Mezcalero Felipe Cortés in the small village of Miahuatlán in August 2015. It was made with a 50/50 blend of agave Tobala and agave Madrecuixe. The agaves in this mezcal were harvested at high altitudes and roasted over mesquite & encino wood. This mezcal was made with spring water and wild yeast fermentation that took seven days to complete. It was distilled twice in copper stills before being bottled at 52.6% ABV. Only 220 liters were produced from this lot (#1-15).

Mezcalosfera de Mezcaloteca

Mezcalosfera de Mezcaloteca is the exported bottling from Mezcaloteca, the famous bar in Oaxaca City that is renowned for their educational tastings. They source all of their agave spirits directly from producers in seldom-traveled parts of Oaxaca that are often hard to get to. They put an exceptional amount of information on their labels, and all of their releases are very small batches that exhibit the most unique characteristics of mezcal. Though only a few batches have been brought into the US, there are dozens upon dozens of different varieties available for sale at their tasting room in Oaxaca City. Most of their spirits are labeled "Aguardiente de Agave", however all of their limited exports are certified "Mezcal". These mezcals are imported into the United States by Heavy Metl Premium Imports, which also imports popular brands Mezcal Real Minero and Rey Campero Mezcal.

This is incredible. I have a bottle of Felipe Cortes’ Madrecuixe and this ensamble is taking it to another level. Strong taste and smell of blueberries. Definitely worth trying.

WOW! Shared this today with my new friends, Jonny and Tyler. This is an amazing mezcal. Fruity and oh so smooth. My only regret is how hard this one is going to be find. Well worth seeking out in your favorite mezcaleria.

Holy Smokes! Hold on to your hat…this mezcal is a wild ride. It’s super fruit-forward, with strong notes of almost every tropical fruit one can imagine, but mostly strong BLUEBERRY! It almost tastes candied in a very earthy and plant-like way. It’s incredibly dynamic and robust. I’ve only seen this in a few bars, and I’d guess that there are very few (if any) full bottles anywhere in the US. Don’t let the sticker shock steer you away. This mezcal is totally worth it. If you like full, round, fruity mezcals, this one is for you.
