Espadín is chosen for the large majority of all mezcal production in Mexico, however Espadin Capon is quite rare. Doña Vega harvests the agave plant several years after it has ripened giving the final distillate a natural sweetness which is incomparable to other mezcals.
Hand-selected, handcrafted, and distilled to proof, our Doña Vega Espadín offers a mysterious and delicious drinking experience. Light smoke with undertones of fruit and a white pepper finish, yet remarkably smooth. Doña Vega Espadín is the perfect addition to any cocktail or perfect on its own.
Maguey espadin is the most commonly used Maguey in mezcal. It generally takes about 8-12 years to mature, and it can be grown in a variety of farm and wild environments.
Doña Vega is produced in a small town outside Oaxaca – Santiago Matatlàn by a family who has passed down the tradition for five generations.
Mezcal has a rich history, and learning more connected me deeply with my Mexican roots. Mezcal is the national spirit of México and is considered a coveted and special drink.
