About this mezcal
Siete Misterios Espadin was the first mezcal expression that Siete Misterios released. While on a trip into the Sierra, they visited the small community of Sola de Vega. The mezcal they tasted there was all hand milled and clay pot distilled, which they noted as giving the mezcal sweeter and spicier features compared to mezcal made in other regions. After tasting this mezcal, they knew that it was the one they needed to release. At about 50% ABV, this mezcal is smooth, and it is always distilled to proof.
Siete Misterios Mezcal
Siete Misterios was founded in 2010 by brothers Julio and Eduardo Mestre with the intent of keeping traditional mezcal production at the forefront of the mezcal industry. The company sources a wide range of mezcals that all highlight a single agave varietal. They are backed by those who are deeply saddened by the industrialization seen in most tequila and some low-grade mezcal, and they’re doing everything in their power to keep the art of the mezcalero alive. The mezcaleros making their bottles change batch to batch, so one batch’s bottles may taste entirely different from the next batch’s bottles. This gives Siete Misterios a lot of variety in it’s bottling as each batch is made by a different person, with agave grown in a slightly different micro-climate, and the mezcal may hold a slightly different ABV. Make sure to check your bottle for these details.
In 2021, the Mestre brothers formed a partnership with Chatham Imports with Chatham becoming the exclusive global sales and marketing agent for Los Siete Misterios, excluding Mexico.
