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

Most of the mezcals you'll see on our shelves are single-variety bottlings with the type of agave clearly indicated. Historically, however, most mezcals were blends, made with whatever agave plants farmers could find in the surrounding land. It wasn't until 1995 when Ron Cooper started labeling his Del Maguey bottles that the single-variety trend took off. Madre Mezcal is a return to the way mezcal has been made for hundreds of years. Jose Garcia Morales and his family use 70% Espadin and 30% Cuixe, resulting in a smooth, soft sip with a gentle, earthly smokiness and notes of green pepper, black peppercorns, honey, and sage. If you're looking to get acquainted with mezcal without dropping some serious pesos, this is an excellent choice.
