Gracias a Dios is a double distilled mezcal, 100% artisanal, handmade with “piñas” from espadín agave and other organic varieties, ground and fermented our own Palenque in Santiago Matatlán, Oaxaca, honoring fair trade with the help of maestro mezcalero Oscar Hernández Santiago. With a strong, aromatic and balanced fl avor, this spirit is the product of a 4th generation family of maestros mezcaleros, who have traditionally kept the artisan processes of making this drink.
Our Palenque is in Santiago Matatlán, Oaxaca and with a production capacity of up to 8,000 liters a month, the Palenque is where we elaborate and bottle our mezcales and agave gin. We have a constantly variable line of spirits and we don’t guide our production on the demand but rather on what the earth has to give us. Our commitment with the earth is to keep the balance within our production, sow and harvest, this way we reward what the soil has given us over the years. For each bottle we produce, we sow 3 agave plants.
Smooth and balanced, light smoke notes, crystalline color, subtle aromas of moist soil, honey and agave.8 year grown Espadín, two times distilled. Smoke and spice right off the bat, followed by fruit and a slight astringency. Same on attack, with spice rising and smoke ever present; mid-palate nicely “sweet”, with a hint of citrus. Drying and spicy nish, with a return to that astringent note. Nice balance overall, and good flavor profile.
