QuiQuiRiQui Matatlan Mezcal Espadin Joven
This unaged (Joven) Mezcal is produced the village of Santiago Matatlan, famed for its long history of Mezcal production. Made using Espadin Agave, Quiquiriqui Matatlan is a classic “house style” mezcal. It has a smooth taste with distinct roasted agave flavours and a peppery finish that is characteristic with the Espadin agave. The agave are locally harvested and traditionally roasted in fire pits, crushed using a Tahona (stone wheel) then fermented outside in oak vats relying on natural airborne yeasts. The final process is a double distillation in small copper stills resulting in a full flavoured mezcal that is perfect as a house pour or for cocktails.
