About this mezcal

Wahaka Espadin Manzanita is a limited release. This mezcal is a “pechuga” made with organic heirloom apples. Maestro Mezcalero Beto Morales uses herbs and fruits in his “pechugas” instead of meat. This heirloom apple blend is placed in the copper stills during the second distillation. The fruit’s characteristics stay strong in the nose with a slight acidity.

Wahaka Mezcal

Wahaka Mezcal is the result of several childhood friends from Mexico City who turned their passion for Mexico’s oldest distilled spirit into a sustainably produced, community-focused, and internationally recognized brand. In 2010, they set out to find Mexico’s finest mezcal. After months of intensely researching, travelling, and tasting their way through Oaxaca, they found kindred spirits in maestro mezcalero Alberto “Beto” Morales Mendez and his family, who, for five generations, have been perfecting the art of making mezcal in San Dionisio Ocotepec, a tiny village in the Central Valley of Oaxaca. Together they created Wahaka, and with it, a new model for mezcal brands, one that was as committed to making an award-winning product as it was supporting the community from which flourishes. Unlike any other spirit, mezcal is a product of its terroir—and you can taste the Spirit of Oaxaca in every drop of this artisanally crafted, small-batch elixir.

  • Overall:

Love these Wahaka special releases. I’ve had several of them now and they’re all unique. This mezcal is very clean and almost scentless. Tasting notes include wild apples followed by ripe green vegetables, with a thick mouthfeel! There’s also a slight hint of charcoal and tanned leather that is quite pleasant. These bottles can be pricey, but definitely worth trying. Lote: ORGULLO-10-AMM. Bottle 35/306.
