100% Espadín agave Mexican spirit, 700ml bottle
Mezcal, from Nahuatl mexcalli , which means cooked agave, is a traditional Mexican spirit distilled from the pineapple-shaped core of various agave species such as Espadin, Tobalá, Tuixe or Tepextate.
This agave fruit liquor is made by hand in Oaxaca, mainly in Santiago Matatlán (the world capital of the Mezcal). Officially, six other Mexican states, including Guerrero and Durango, are allowed to produce this spirit.
Mezcal has been an integral part of Mexico since its creation.
Mezcal GRACIAS A DIOS Espadín Joven, 100% Agave
Gracias a Dios Espadín Joven is a premium mezcal of 8-year-old Espadín agave with a clear, shimmering appearance and a light body.
The bouquet of the double-distilled mezcal is spicy, with a pleasantly smoky character and a slight tartness. On the palate, spices and tropical fruits are omnipresent. A delicious combination of light smoke, sweetness and citrus notes. Its finish is long, dry and spicy.
An exceptional Mezcal, very balanced, with a complex taste profile.

Production of Gracias a Dios
The harvest - Jima
After 6 years, the Espadin agave is ripe for producing a good mezcal.
In order to get to the agave heart, the leaves and the root of the agave are cut off. For this purpose, the Jimador uses cutting tools such as machetes, mainly the so-called coa, a semicircular sharp metal object with a wooden handle specially developed for agave harvesting.
The cooking process and the grinding
The piñas are cooked for about four days in a pit covered with stones and agave leaves. During cooking, the agaves absorb the aroma of the soil and smoke.
To obtain the pulp, the frogs are then ground with a stone mill.
Fermentation, distillation and bottling
The obtained pulp is stored in oak tubs in which it naturally fermented, depending on the weather, from 3 to 15 days. After fermentation, the mezcal is distilled twice.
The Mezcal Joven - is filled directly, the - Reposado - only after 3 months of storage.
