Our story begins in the remote mountain regions of Oaxaca, Mexico, hidden in a small family Palenque, overlooking the vast desert vistas and beautiful green agave accents of the Oaxacan countryside.

Shrouded in tradition, Mestiza Negra tells the story of four hundred years, each bottle a celebration of our loved ones, the land that sustains us, and the world that we nurture.

From expertly roasting the agaves under the Oaxacan sun, to carefully fermenting and distilling the purest mezcal, the journey from soil to bottle is our family photo album.

Medium body with a sweet and soft nose, fruity palate, and a long finish with slight minerality. A complex flavor profile, but much more mellow and mild as far as Espadíns go. Subtle smokiness with a very clean and light mouthfeel, goes down nice and smooth, making our Espadín one the most balanced mezcals on the market.
