Description

A mezcalero’s mezcal made from Agave Espadín tells a lot about that mezcalero’s style and craftsmanship. Because specific notes can’t be attributed to different agave types, the characteristics of a mezcal Espadín can be very indicative of the hand of the maker.

This expression of Espadín is made by the hand of Aquilino Garcia Lopez at his paleque in the remote village of Candelaria Yegole. Aquilino cultivates his Agave Espadín in the hills above his palenque, located on the border of the Central Valley and Sierra Sur regions of Oaxaca. He stone grinds the pinas after an underground roast lasting upwards of five days.
Aquilino's mezcals are twice distilled with a copper still.

Bottle Size: 750ml

Origins

At Vago, we believe in walking away from the beaten path, losing ourselves in the hills, and searching out the extraordinary. We seek out small batch mezcaleros, who for generations have been perfecting their craft deep in the mountains of Oaxaca.

Each of our unique mezcals is naturally made in a traditional palenque with no additives. On the front label of each of our bottles, all the information is there about who made it, what pueblo, what agave, size of batch and more. This is connoisseur mezcal. We aim to empower both the master craftsmen with a celebration of his art, and also the consumer by giving them the knowledge they need to find a great mezcal.
