Los Siete Misterios Espadin
Siete Misterios Espadin was the first mezcal expression that Siete Misterios released.
The Los Siete Misterios Mezcal is made using the Angustifolia Agave plant. Mezcal, like Tequila, originates from Mexico and like Tequila it is made using the Agave plant. The main difference being that Tequila has to use the Blue Agave plant (Agave Tequilana) whereas Mezcal can use a variety of other Agaves. The result is a more rustic style of Tequila, however in recent years the quality of Mezcals has been catching Tequila up as seen here with the Los Siete Misterios Espadin which won silver at Spirits of Mexico 2011.
Siete Misterios Espadin was the first mezcal expression that Siete Misterios released. While on a trip into the Sierra, they visited the small community of Sola de Vega. The mezcal they tasted there was all hand milled and clay pot distilled, which they noted as giving the mezcal sweeter and spicier features compared to mezcal made in other regions. After tasting this mezcal, they knew that it was the one they needed to release.
