About this mezcal
Picaflor Espadin / Madrecuishe is produced by maestro mezcalero Don Ramón Cruz García in Mengolí de Morelos, Miahuatlán, Oaxaca. Don Ramon uses 80% Espadin and 20% wild Madrecuishe in this ensamble. The agaves are milled by tahona, fermented in cypress tanks, and double distilled in 300 liter copper pot stills.
Picaflor Mezcal is a project from Enmezcalarte, a group of Mexican importers who import high-end Mexican spirits into Spain. The group started the Picaflor project and brand to import products from small distillers from Oaxaca, for sale and distribution in Europe. Picaflor means hummingbird, a bird that mainly feeds on agave nectar in Oaxaca. The brand was founded in 2012 to work with traditional producers.
