Crafted with an art handed down by five generations, this wild agave blend mezcal is a gift from ancient times. Sweet, aromatic and smokey, authentic, yet elegant: Xiaman Mezcal will appeal to all your senses.
A Xiaman is the keeper of traditions, and responsible for the balance between men, nature, and the spiritual world. With its delicate balance and soft aroma, Xiaman mezcal represents the best of Mexico's heritage now offered to the world.
Xiaman is a blend of two agaves, 50% Tepextate agave and 50% Espadín agave. Tepextate is a wild agave that requires 25 to 30 years to properly mature, while the Espadín agave is harvest-ready in 3 to 8 years.
Our palanquero harvesters, according to tradition, only cut the agave during a full moon. The experience of 5 generations has taught them this is the moment when the plants is at the peak of sweetness.
Both types of agave cores are baked together in a mix called “heated assembly”. This is a very important step, since the distillation process of an ensemble is much more complicated than distilling a single type of agave. However, this is the key to obtain a more complex mezcal.
Xiaman Mezcal is an ensemble blend of two equal parts of agaves, Tepextate and Espadín, and thus provides a perfect balance between the complex flavours of the Tepextate agave and the rich aromas from mature Espadin.
Xiaman Mezcal is a very sensual spirit dedicated to detail and quality.
