Erstwhile Mezcal’s flagship product line in the United States features seven different distillations, with volume as small as 100 liters for an entire distillation.
Two of the seven distillations are Espadíns, a cultivated agave varietal. Each made by a different master mezcalero:
- Erstwhile Mezcal’s signature Espadín, crafted by master mezcalero / goat-roast extraordinario Silverio García Luis.
- Erstwhile Mezcal’s Espadín Capón, a 2018 Limited Edition of only 100 liters, made with piñas that were grown on and lovingly cared for on master mezcalero Juan Hernández Méndez’s own land, and hand-selected at harvest for maximum maturity.
Four of these seven distillations are made from wild varietals of agave:
Last but not least, we have Henequén. Erstwhile Mezcal is the first mezcal brand to launch an artisanal Henequén in the US market. This is a very special distillation of only 397 liters, made from cultivated Henequén piñas. With a wonderfully unique flavor profile and a super interesting background story to boot.
