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 maguey Tobala and maguey Madrecuixe. The agaves in this mezcal were harvested at high altitudes and roasted over mesquite and 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.
