“A clean spirit with subtle smokiness.” GEM&BOLT is a clean spirit with a smooth profile and subtle botanical notes resulting in the perfect mezcal. GEM&BOLT is a small batch joven mezcal made with perfectly ripened, late harvest, 100% espadin agave from the central valleys of Oaxaca, Mexico. GEM&BOLT is deeply informed by hundreds of years of tradition, using no artificial yeasts, additives or chemicals. The pĨna is slowly wood-roasted in conic earthen pits and mashed with traditional tahona stone. It then goes through a natural fermentation in oak vats. The first distillation is in small copper stills and then rested (not aged) in oak barrels for 3-6 months. During the second distillation, using our proprietary stainless-steel copper alloy still, the damiana herb is introduced as the agave spirit’s vapors pass through the botanical basket releasing the damiana’s essential oils. This process highlights herbal notes of chamomile, balanced by a well-rounded roasted agave profile distinct to artisanal mezcals from San Dionisio Ocotepec. Damiana is a traditional Mexican herb long-revered by the Maya and Aztec for its myriad of mood-elevating properties. This beloved heart-opening herb perfectly complements GEM&BOLT resulting in a unique composition of biosphere and natural elements promising only the highest quality mezcal.

A slightly smoky, yet herbaceous undertone rests on the center of the palate, while citrus and floral notes from the Barril are introduced and strengthened by the warm viscose finish of the Mexicano. This is a light and easy sipping mezcal, which will delight and surprise you with its complex lingering finish. Espadín The Espadín agave, known as the genetic Mother of the Blue Weber Agave, is used to produce tequila, and is also the predominant agave used in mezcal production. Unique in itself, the characteristics of this agave showcase the aromas of wet earth, a rich smokiness on the mid-palate, and a finish reminiscent of wild flowers. Barril This thick-foliaged, wild agave, often used as fencing to divide land in Oaxaca, intensifies the complexity of this mezcal. As citrus and floral notes arise, hints of green peppers compliment the nose. The palate is a delightful balance of citrus and creamy banana. Mexicano The Mexicano agave thrives in the moist environment of lower elevations. This wild agave can grow quite large and is usually harvested when close to ten years of age. The concentration of sugar in the fully mature agave produces an extremely powerful mezcal. The palate is distinctively herbaceous and earthy with a long lasting finish in the mouth.

Created from Espadin agave, El Buho Mezcal is handcrafted at a traditional artisan distillery in the heart of Oaxaca. Mature agave plants are carefully selected, then slowly roasted for one week in an underground stone pit with local mesquite wood. The roasted agave pieces are crushed on a traditional Tohona stone mill, well water is added to the resulting aguamiel, and the mixture fermented for a few days. The mash is then double distilled in a fifth generation alembic still and packaged in a distinctive bottle featuring "el buho" himself. El Buho Mezcal is now available in the US thanks to Brooklyn-based company, Henry Steele Imports. An inviting nose of sweet agave, vanilla and delicate smoke leads to a rich, full-flavored palate with herbaceous notes of roasted agave, sweet potato, vanilla and earth. The finish is long, spicy and peppery, enhanced by an elegant touch of smoke.

Elevate the taste of your home cocktails with NARAN or sip it neat to enjoy the nuances this mezcal offers. --- Mezcal Carreño began in 1904 with Don Apolonio Carreño, with mezcal that was made from wild agaves that naturally grew on property, land that ironically in some plots, was used to grow sugar cane and was sold to the family of the largest rum producers in the country. At Hacienda Carreño the mezcal was shared during three big parties a year, the first, on Apolonio's birthday in February; the second, at the end of the milling of the sugar cane in April and the third, with the harvest of the corn crops at the end of the year. Today, the tradition of making mezcal is kept alive, preserving the artisanal process using wild & cultivated agaves. Mezcal Carreño is ensuring the future by planting over 30,000 agaves since 2017 and additional plots every year. They support multiple non-profits both in Oaxaca and Arizona. In Oaxaca Gók-nenna, meaning "Help me" in zapoteco, has a focus on helping the Zapotec Indigenous women. In Arizona the Urban Agave Initiative helps plant agaves in the Phoenix and Tucson communities to support the endangered mexican long-nosed and shorter-nosed bats. These bats are critical to supporting the desert ecosystem as pollinators of the night.

No other agave offers the variety of aromas and flavors as the Tobalá — “the king of mezcales” — a wild plant that grows in the highlands, often on extremely rugged mountainsides and rocky cliffs. Not only is foraging for the Tobalá a challenge, but its smaller size means a significantly larger number of plants are needed to produce this delicious mezcal. With its instantly recognizable aroma, the Tobalá is explosive across the palate — enriched with sweet floral and herbaceous flavors — and its sensations resonate with a hint of numbness, thanks to its long finish. One kiss, and you’ll quickly understand why this small-batch spirit is so special. Because it’s so rare, mezcal lovers often keep a bottle of Tobalá tucked away for special occasions. Enjoy sparingly!

Climbing the rugged dirt roads high above San Dionisio Ocotepec, we discover the remote village of Las Milpas, a true example that “you don’t find Mezcal, Mezcal finds you.” Here, nestled among the cornfields overlooking rolling pastures, lies the palenque of Anastacio Cruz Antonio and his sons Rigoberto, Abel, and Pedro. Their Single Village expression is crafted by roasting ripe agave Espadin in an earthen horno carved into the granite hillside. Roasted agave is milled using a horse-drawn molino and fermented using only ambient microbes and yeasts in open-air wooden fermentation tanks and twice distilled in small copper stills. Las Milpas offers a nose of slate and minerals, balanced by tropical fruit and citrus notes, with rose petal florals, lavender, tarragon, and pea shoots, that evolves into a long and pleasantly dry finish.

Fernando Santibañez had a passion for mezcal and its limitless possibilities. Using his years of experience and his love for mezcal, Fernando respectfully combined the traditions of mezcal with those of barrel aging to create a unique expression in Xicaru Añejo. Xicaru Añejo is made with traditional methods from 100% Maguey espadin. It rests for a minimum of one year in medium-toasted, used American oak barrels and is finished to 86 proof. Used barrels are employed to prevent over-aging, and the higher proof helps to maintain the essential characteristics of mezcal.

Erstwhile-Espadin-Mezcal
Master Mezcalero: Silverio García Luis & Epifania Gómez Mejía NOM: NOM-0162 Agave Varietal: Espadín Scientific Name: Agave angustifolia Town / Municipality: Rancho Blanco Güilá, Santiago Matatlán State: Oaxaca Fermentation: Natural, Open-Vat Fermentation in Wood Still Type: Copper Alembic ABV: 48-49% TASTING NOTES Butterscotch, black tea, banana, and roasted maguey. A little sweet, a little creamy. Savory, spicy, and peppery, in a way that reminds us of smoked meats and Texas style barbecue. Followed by lingering, resonating notes of ash and soft smoke on the palate. ESPADIN (Agave angustifolia): Espadin is the most common varietal of agave used in mezcal production. It is indigenous to most mezcal-producing regions and adapts well to cultivation. Depending on the terroir and climate, Esapdin typically takes 5-7 years to mature, which is considered fast in the world of agaves. Espadin piñas come in a variety of sizes, and can weigh as much as several hundred pounds. The agave is easy to work with. Subject to the hand of the maker, Espadin can yield a wide variety of flavors and profiles, depending on the climate, time of year at harvest, production style, altitude, and countless other factors. Do not underestimate Espadin. Despite the fact that Espadin is the most “common” agave varietal used for mezcal production, and often less expensive than other varietals, it makes some of the best and most interesting mezcals. As a friend in the trade once said, Espadin mezcal is never “just an Espadin.” THE BACKSTORY While Erstwhile Mezcal is known for its forte in small-batch artisanal mezcal made from wild, more “exotic” varietals of agave, we are extremely proud and stand 110% behind our signature Espadín mezcal. In fact, we challenge you to find a better-tasting Espadín. That is how confident we are about our Espadín, though of course reasonable minds can differ when it comes to matters of the heart. Who is the producer that crafted Erstwhile Mezcal’s signature Espadín? Meet Silverio García Luis and Epifania Gómez Mejía, a producer family of Zapotec heritage based in Rancho Blanco Güilá, Oaxaca. Counting Silverio and Epifania, there has been at least three generations of mezcaleros in the García family. Epifania did not grow up in a mezcal family, but learned the ropes and became a mezcalera of her own right after marrying into the García family. She was recently recognized as a Woman in Mezcal in the January 2020 edition of El Mezcal, an online publication by the Mezcal Regulatory Council (Consejo Regulador del Mezcal). The legacy and craft of artisanal mezcal production have deep roots in the García family. Silverio and Epifania learned the craft from Silverio’s father, renowned master mezcalero Lorenzo Antonio García (Don Lencho, as he is commonly known). In February 2016, The Mezcal Regulatory Council recognized Don Lencho as a Cultural Treasure of Mezcal, a remarkable and rare honor reserved for the few master mezcaleros who are known for excellent mezcal and have preserved the virtuosity of artisanal mezcal production for at least 60 years.

Green vegetal notes and a slight capsicum spice linger on the finish. AGAVE MADRECUISHE Madrecuishe is part of the Karwinskii family of agaves. It thrives in dry climates and typically grows in a tall, cylindrical shape. Due to the agave’s dense core and low water content, mezcal made from Madrecuishe typically has high minerality with vegetal and floral notes. 100% Agave Karwinskii | San Luis Amatlán, Oaxaca | NOM-0472X Copper Pot Still ACCOLADES 95 Points, The Tasting Panel

Nuestra-Soledad-San-Baltazar-Mezcal
San Baltazar Guelavila is a small town on the eastern side of the Valles Centrales region of Oaxaca, Mexico in the district of Tlacolula. It is in these valley highlands, because of their fertile, limestone soils, that espadín has been cultivated for over 100 years alongside other sustaining crops. Don Gregorio Martinez grows his espadín at an elevation of 5,500 feet surrounded by diverse agriculture such as tropical fruits and citrus. The proliferation of fruits and vegetables being grown in the area lend their naturally occurring yeasts to the wild fermentation process and give this mezcal its distinctive sparkling aromatics and rich flavor. ABOUT NUESTRA SOLEDAD From the same producers as El Jolgorio, Mezcal Nuestra Soledad is comprised of six distinct mezcals from six different producers located in various regions of Oaxaca, intended to highlight elements of terroir in mezcal production. Oaxaca is one of the most geographically diverse states in Mexico, with a wide array of microclimates, vegetation, and ecosystems. Nuestra Soledad is made using 100% agave Espadín, cultivated in the remote mountain areas around the Valles Centrales region of Oaxaca, alongside wild vegetation and planted in varying soil types, resulting in an array of flavor profiles. Even more importantly, each mezcalero employs his own methods, often passed down through the generations. Every decision impacts the final character of the mezcal. The environmental diversity, combined with the human element of mezcal production, result in six unique mezcals, despite all six being made from a single agave variety: Espadín.

More than 500 years ago, the hearts of agave plants were used to prepare a spirit known in Nahuatl as water of "mezcalli" or "roasted pine". Legend has it that the first roasting of an agave plant occurred when it was struck by a thunderbolt during a powerful storm. For this reason mezcal is often referred to as the drink descended from the heavens. Today, after five generations, the traditionally crafted Joya Azul, retains the same premium quality as the mezcal first bottled by the Leon family in 1890.

A slightly smoky, yet herbaceous undertone rests on the center of the palate, while citrus and floral notes from the Barril are introduced and strengthened by the warm viscose finish of the Mexicano. This is a light and easy sipping mezcal, which will delight and surprise you with its complex lingering finish. Espadín The Espadín agave, known as the genetic Mother of the Blue Weber Agave, is used to produce tequila, and is also the predominant agave used in mezcal production. Unique in itself, the characteristics of this agave showcase the aromas of wet earth, a rich smokiness on the mid-palate, and a finish reminiscent of wild flowers. Barril This thick-foliaged, wild agave, often used as fencing to divide land in Oaxaca, intensifies the complexity of this mezcal. As citrus and floral notes arise, hints of green peppers compliment the nose. The palate is a delightful balance of citrus and creamy banana. Mexicano The Mexicano agave thrives in the moist environment of lower elevations. This wild agave can grow quite large and is usually harvested when close to ten years of age. The concentration of sugar in the fully mature agave produces an extremely powerful mezcal. The palate is distinctively herbaceous and earthy with a long lasting finish in the mouth.

Mezcalero No. 16 was made with semi-wild agave Madre-Cuishe, and it was distilled by Don Valente Angel in Santa Maria Pila. The Madre-Cuishe has high acidity, and therefore creates great structure and clarity of flavor in the Mezcal. This is another beautifully distilled Mezcal from Don Valente Angel. There are notes of softly roasted agave, subtle fruit, and minerality that meet a lively herbaceousness. The liquid coats the mouth. This Mezcal has a vegetal foundation and hints of soft smoke.

La-Jicarita-Pechuga-Mezcal
A raw turkey is traditionally suspended over the copper alembic still during the second distillation of Mezcal con Pechuga. This unique process cooks the turkey, and as the vapors of the distill pass through the protein an undeniable richness is added to this “elixir of the gods”. In homage to Zapotec rituals, our 3rd generation Maestro Mezcalero refines his centuries-old family recipe into this award-winning Mezcal.

Alipus-San-Juan-Oaxaca-Mezcal
Made by the same palanquero as Los Nahuales (as it is known here in the U.S. – it goes by Los Danzantes in Mexico), Don Joel Antonio Cruz y familia, the San Juan del Rio Alipús is made from 100% Espadín. Per the tasting notes from Craft Distillers it was fermented in oak vats and is the fruit of non-irrigated Espadín “grown in sunny mountain-top plantings in ferriferous soil at 4,600 feet.” They describe it as “Fruity, rich, smokey, pleasantly sweet.” In our tasting we found a full agave nose with a slight sweetness and light smoke notes. It was smooth on the tongue and displayed an even alcohol note. The palate reveals even more smoke which is the dominant impression left after a swallow. This is definitely the smokiest Alipús which should appeal to scotch drinkers who appreciate some peat.

Mayalen Borrego (the Spanish word for "lamb") is an organically handcrafted mezcal made from wild cupreata agave hand picked by the maestro mezcalero. They take 7 years to fully grow and are harvested from the hillsides accessible only by foot, where donkeys are required to transport the agaves. Cooked for three days in an earthen stone oven, the agave juice is extracted using a tahona wheel. It is naturally fermented for about a week in aged wooden barrels and triple distilled in a wood-fired copper still with a leg of lamb infused in the final distillation, hence its name. This joven mezcal is produced at Erdini S.A. de C.V and bottled at 49% ABV.

El-Jolgorio-Espadin-Mezcal
Espadín is the most prevalent species of agave in Mexico and reaches maturity earlier (7-12 yrs) than most other agaves. It also grows to be very large with a high sugar content, making it perfect for mezcal production. However, only the most unique lots of mezcal Espadín crafted by the Casa Cortés collective of mezcaleros are bottled under the El Jolgorio brand, oftentimes vintage batches that were either reserved for resting, or simply "forgotten" and tucked away in the corner of the palenque. El Jolgorio consistently produces some of the most sought after Espadin mezcals available in the market. ABOUT EL JOLGORIO Mezcal forms an important part of rituals, ceremonies, and festivities in villages in our homeland of southern Mexican state of Oaxaca. These celebrations - also known as Jolgorios - always involve mezcal, a drink that spans cultures and bonds families. Fifteen unique El Jolgorio Mezcals are made from different species and varieties of wild-harvested and semi-cultivated agaves by master distillers in remote villages in the Central Valleys region of Oaxaca. Each El Jolgorio label signifies a different agave variety, with each tiny batch released in sequentially numbered editions. Due to the scarcity of wild agaves and a commitment to sustainability, the batches rotate, meaning each new edition might be produced from different regional producers within the tightly-knit collective. Every label bears the name of the distiller, village, age of agave at harvest, and number of bottles, to connect the drinker with the place of origin and the families behind the spirit.

Delirio-Anejo-Oaxaca
Mezcal Delirio de Oaxaca Añejo is meticulously handcrafted under the supervision of master distiller Fernando Santibañez. This añejo is produced at a traditional palenque in Miahuatlán, Oaxaca, by Ricardo Gonzalez, a fourth generation grower and distiller. Delirio de Oaxaca Añejo is made from two naturally cultivated agaves: Agave espadin and Agave madre cuishe. After approximately seven years, the agave is harvested by hand and cooked for three days in an underground stone oven heated with mesquite and copal. The cooked agave is then mashed by the tahona method and naturally fermented in open pine vats. Following fermentation, the must is double-distilled in copper alembics, aged for a minimum of 12 months in moderately toasted new American white oak casks, filtered and precisely blended to 80 proof. The final product has a robust woody profile with elegant sweet notes from aging in new casks and thin fruity notes from the blending of two agaves. Mezcal Delirio de Oaxaca Añejo: 100% agave and certified by the Mexican government / COMERCAM.

Mezcal Don Ramón Joven is a transcendent expression of this category of hand-made spirits. Made from 100% Salmiana Agave from Zacatecas, Mexico that has been matured for 8-10 years, this clear spirit embodies the earthen smokiness of mezcal. A sip delights the palette with an awakening, yet balanced aroma of herbs, florals, and fresh citrus layered with a subtle fruity finish brought forth by the agave. For each Salmiana Agave harvested, Casa Don Ramón plants two more of the species in its place.

Gracias-A-Dios-Gin-Mezcal
Gracias a Dios Gin was developed by students at Oaxaca State University. This spirit is somewhat unique as it’s made with agave Espadin, like the majority of other mezcals. Aside from a few differences, this spirit is made using the same process as any other mezcal. Distillation is one of the key differences. Gracias a Dios Gin is triple distilled, and during the additional third distillation, thirty-two hand picked botanicals are added to the liquid. A touch of juniper prevails over the other flavors, although notes of citric and fresh herbs arise from this as well.

Nuestra-Soledad-Santiago-Matatlan-Mezcal
Nuestra Soledad Santiago Matatlan is made using Espadin that grows between 5,500-5,900 feet elevation in a mountain canyon that has incredible agave diversity. The Espadin used in this Mezcal grows among a sea of wild Tepeztate, Tobala, and Coyote. ABOUT NUESTRA SOLEDAD From the same producers as El Jolgorio, Mezcal Nuestra Soledad is comprised of six distinct mezcals from six different producers located in various regions of Oaxaca, intended to highlight elements of terroir in mezcal production. Oaxaca is one of the most geographically diverse states in Mexico, with a wide array of microclimates, vegetation, and ecosystems. Nuestra Soledad is made using 100% agave Espadín, cultivated in the remote mountain areas around the Valles Centrales region of Oaxaca, alongside wild vegetation and planted in varying soil types, resulting in an array of flavor profiles. Even more importantly, each mezcalero employs his own methods, often passed down through the generations. Every decision impacts the final character of the mezcal. The environmental diversity, combined with the human element of mezcal production, result in six unique mezcals, despite all six being made from a single agave variety: Espadín.
