This rare batch of Arroqueño-Espadin Ensamble – one of Erstwhile’s 2021 Ancestral Limited Releases- marks Master Mezcalero Juan Abel Quiroz Agustín’s debut in the United States and international markets. Only 300 liters made. Natural open-vat fermentation in Santa María Sola, Oaxaca. Distilled exclusively in clay pots.
A true blend of 50% Tepeztate and 50% Tobalá, two agaves that are dramatically different in personality. This Tepeztate-Tobalá Ensamble is Tepeztate forward, meaning you will likely taste the green, vegetal, and pear notes of the Tepeztate first, before it expands into the Tobalá’s sweeter fruit notes and rounder body.
