About this mezcal
Sacapalabras Tobasiche – Espadin is an ensamble produced in the beautiful community of Santa Catarina Minas, Oaxaca. The traditions of Minas are becoming more well-known in the mezcal community, and the Sacapalabras brand is doing a lot to keep those traditions alive today. While each release from the brand may come from different producers, all are made in the traditions of this small community, mashing the agave by hand, fermenting with naturally occurring open-air yeasts, and distilling in small clay pots. Some batches of this are made by famed maestro mezcalero Eduardo “Lalo” Angeles. The ABV will vary by batch.
Sacapalabras is a mezcal that seeks to carry on the traditions of Santa Catarina Minas, Oaxaca. For them, being ancestral means to preserve the traditions, being ancestral means to rethink the traditions as a bridge that connects the past with new generations, a bridge that lets them transmit the best of Oaxacan culture.
Their producers use the original organic processes inherited through the generations to create Sacapalabras. From the cooking of agave in traditional ovens, the grinding with wood mallets through the fermentation in wooden vats, and distillation in clay pots. They take care of every detail in the process in order to keep the historical uniqueness of this ancestral beverage alive.

Both agaves make themselves heard, nose delivers peppers and bread, more mineral than fruity, farmyard, yeasty, beer, slightly acidic. In the mouth, the Espadin takes stage first with sweet-savoury punch, followed by herbal minerality.
