Tasting Notes

Made by Master Mezcalero Jose Ines Garcia Morales and his family, Madre is a blend of Espadin and Cuishe agaves that are harvested, cooked, fermented and distilled along time honored traditional mezcal practices by this multi-generation producer. Stylistically the spirit sits at a cross section of savoury, sweet, earthy and spicy lending this the versatility to be used in cocktails although it has plenty going on to satisfy those looking for a slow sipper.

Staff Pick Notes

Blends, both in wine and spirits, seem to have quite a stigma among the drinking public. I’ve heard claims of inferior quality, lack of “purity” (whatever that means), and implications that blending is for those looking for shortcuts. All of this is nonsense of course. This blend of Espadin and Cuishe makes for a bold and refreshing nip of Mezcal. Woodland aromas of pine, fresh mint, and heather. The palate starts savory with animal fats and gamey meat. This is cleansed with a big burst of fresh mint and anise. Swig, breathe deeply, and let this radiate through you.
