Distilled with both the newcomer and the seasoned consumer in mind, Madre Mezcal is a ‘gateway spirit’ that offers beautifully well-balanced flavor with smooth finish. With less smoke than most mezcals, Madre opens palates to a new market of consumers. Madre is a certified artisanal product from Mexico, hand made by mezcaleros in open air palanques located in the rural hills of Oaxaca. Using local water and natural yeast from the air, Madre’s flavor is directly tied to the earth it comes from.
