Quiquiriqui Matatlan is a classic "house style" mezcal. It has a smooth taste with distinct roasted agave flavours and a peppery finish that is characteristic with the Espadin agave. The agave are locally harvested and traditionally roasted in fire pits, crushed using a Tahona (stone wheel) then fermented outside in oak vats relying on natural airborne yeasts. The final process is a double distillation in small copper stills resulting in a full flavoured mezcal that is perfect as a house pour or for cocktails.
QuiQuiRiQui Matatlan Mezcal is a grandstand of classic flavours, from smoky to sugary sweet, from earthy notes to a peppery finish.
