About this mezcal

Paquera Espadin is made with cultivated agave Espadin in Ejutla, Oaxaca. This mezcal was curated for it’s use in cocktails but it’s also good neat. The agave used in this mezcal are cooked in an underground pit oven, mashed by horse-drawn tahona, fermented in oak vats, and double distilled in a copper still.

Paquera Mezcal

Paquera Mezcal gets it's name from a story about it's founder. He was dating a Brazilian girl and anytime he was out with her, she would say his name with Paquera at the end. In Portuguese, this word directly translates to a flirt or flirting, but in this case it was being used to describe that grey area of Friends with Benefits. This term is on every bottle and it's spirit is reflected in the logo and bottle design.

Lot PAQEJ450118. With so many new brands bringing mezcal into the US over the last 6-12 months, it’s great to see/taste something new that’s from anywhere other than Santiago Matatlan. Not that I have anything against Matatlan, but it seems like everyone and their mother are opening shop there, so it’s refreshing to taste something like Paquera from Ejutla, a region that I generally prefer from a production standpoint. This Espadin is the best from a new brand that I’ve had in a while, especially at their current price point. This is a great deal. Rich aromas of brine, seaweed, and fresh rhubarb. The palate is balanced, full, and buttery. More notes of brininess and ocean breeze on the palate. Very pleasant.
