Cruz de Fuego Mezcal Espadin - Spirits Worth Raising

Cruz de Fuego Mezcal Espadin

Launched in 2015 by Margarita Blas and her son Carlos Mendez Blas, Cruz de Fuego is based in Santiago Matatlan, Oaxaca, and produces mezcal in a certified artisanal, traditional way, embracing everything that sets mezcal apart from other spirits. Agaves are at the center of this where other sources of fermentables (grains, fruit, sugar cane) take a mere couple of months to mature, some agave variants may take up to 25 years!The agaves are roasted underground for 5 days in conical stone-lined ovens, covered with dirt. The cooked agaves are then milled using a stone wheel, pulled by a horse. They are then left in open-air wooden barrels, where wild fermentation takes place, before being distilled twice in wood-fired copper stills. The respect for the land and tradition has paid off and their products have received multiple awards, the coveted "Double Gold" at the San Francisco World Spirits Competition among them.The Mezcal Espadin expression follows that traditional process and is made using 7- to 10-year-old agaves. It is bottled at 90 proof and features an exquisitely light, sweet, vegetal and floral profile. The unique and eye-catching fabric labels honor the Oaxacan textile tradition.Get one of these beautiful bottles today!
