Marca Negra Espadin Mezcal - Spirits Worth Raising

Marca Negra Espadin Mezcal

Marca Negra was founded in 2010 with the mission of promoting the best authentic mezcal, and sources its spirits from some of Oaxacas most talented mezcaleros. In pursuit of its mission, Marca Negra works closely with its producers, who make their mezcals in the traditional way at their family palenques. The brands philosophy is to give the distillers freedom to make the spirit the way they want it to be, which results in an incredibly diverse and modern range of authentic mezcals. In 2017, Marca Negra partnered up with Phillips Distilling Company, which was expanding its portfolio in response to the markets growing demand for mezcal. Mezcal is a traditional Mexican spirit, made of only agave and water. Most of mezcal is made in the state of Oaxaca. Usually hand-crafted by small-scale producers, who use methods that have been passed down from generation to generation, mezcal is a very diverse spirit, which is traditionally drunk straight, but also does well in a cocktail. Mezcal is produced from more than 30 different types of agave, with Espadin being one of the most commonly used varieties. When the plants are harvested, their hearts (pias) are extracted, and then slow roasted for several days, often in traditional pit ovens, which gives the end product its distinctive smoky flavor. The roasted agave hearts are milled or crushed, mixed with water and left to ferment in large barrels. The liquid is then double distilled in copper or clay pot stills, and bottled as mezcal joven or put into barrels to age. Marca Negra Espadin Mezcal is a premium young mezcal (mezcal joven), handcrafted in small batches by best Oaxaca distillers. This fully organic expression is produced from 100 percent Espadin agave, using traditional methods, and adjusted to the taste of its distiller. The unique bottle with a black handprint features the signature of the distiller and details about the batch.Grab your bottle today!
