Distillery Information

Convite Esencial is the essential bottling of the Convite collection. This artisanal mezcal is produced from Espadín agaves with a maturity of 8+ years at a single palenque in the village of San Baltazar Guelavila, located in Oaxaca.
Espadín is the most commonly sourced agave varietal for mezcal. Its sky-reaching sword-like leaves protect the piña. Typically, an Espadín agave will take 5-8 years to reach maturity, though we like to leave ours alone for 8.
At the national level, mezcal has denomination of origin for nine states of the Mexican Republic: Durango, Guerrero, Guanajuato, Michoacán, Oaxaca, Puebla, San Luis Potosí, Tamaulipas, and Zacatecas.
Compared to other species, Espadin is medium in size, with sword-like leaves that extend outward from the agave's piña. While each agave varietal offers unique flavors and characteristics, Espadin sits firmly in the center of the flavor spectrum showing a mild sweetness and modest herbal and citrus flavors.Mezcal can be made from over 30 different types of agave, but the vast majority is made from a variety known as Agave espadin. This particular kind of agave is primarily grown in Oaxaca, Mexico, a region known as the home of mezcal ( 2 ).Mezcal can reach an alcohol content of 55%. Like tequila, mezcal is distilled twice.
