About this destilado de agave
Sin Gusano Espadin from Santa Maria Sola, Oaxaca is produced by maestro mezcalero Abel Quiroz. The agave used in this mezcal are milled by hand and double distilled in clay pot stills that are traditional to the greater Sola de Vega region where this mezcal is made. Abel is a 2nd generation mezcal producer, who took over from his father in 2005. He cultivates both Espadín and Tobala magueyes.
Sin Gusano Project
The Sin Gusano Project aims to inspire consumers to ethically explore the wonders of handmade agave spirits, which are traditionally known as Mezcal. The brand operates bars and events, and travels regularly through Mexico to source an evolving range of rare distillates. Many of these artisanal spirits haven’t been experienced outside of the communities in which they are made until now.
Sin Gusano launched the Mezcal Appreciation Society (M.A.S.) in spring 2020. M.A.S. is the UK’s only agave spirits subscription club, providing members with regular shipments of agave spirits and educational materials. Membership to the Mezcal Appreciation Society can be purchased here.

Really nice Espadin via Sola de Vega from SG. Could be an everyday sipper. Notes of sweet agave with earthiness, almost chalky nature. Interesting and complex, hard not to take another sip. Very good value too.
