• Espadín

    This Espadin stood out from the (many) others we had tasted. It hit that magical sweet spot of taste, complexity, good value and versatility. Elegant. Balanced. Nuanced. Approachable but never boring.

  • Tepeztate-Tobalá Ensamble (2018 Limited Edition)

    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.

  • Tobalá (2018 Limited Edition)

    This Tobalá mezcal is an easy sipper, with tropical fruit notes and a rounder mouth feel. It makes us think of dessert, and would make a fabulous after-dinner digestif with dessert or on its own. Banana foster, creme brûlée, banana pudding … The possibilities are endless.

  • Cucharillo Sotol (2021 Limited Edition)

    This wild Sotol from Oaxaca’s southern highlands, known as Cucharillo locally, is the most aromatic and botanical from Erstwhile Mezcal’s 2021 Limited Releases.  Oregano, lemon balm, and other wild mountain herbs that grow naturally in the same hills make a delightful bouquet in this Cucharillo’s mouth feel and flavor profile.

  • Tepeztate (2021 Ancestral Limited Edition)

    A legacy of the era when Mezcal production was illegal in Oaxaca, this batch of Tepeztate crafted by Silverio García Luis – a 2021 Ancestral Limited Release – rescues a García family tradition that had been forgotten for more than forty years.

    Don Lencho, Silverio’s father, used a hollowed out quiote (the flowering stalk of agave plants) instead of a copper turbante, to evade the military that would come and seize his distillation equipment by force.

    Now you too can partake in this unique mezcal tradition from the García family in Rancho Blanco Güilá, Oaxaca, available for the first time in the United States in partnership with Erstwhile Mezcal.
