Mezcal is having a moment. The spirit hails primarily from Mexico and actually refers to any liquor made from agave, which means tequila (made specifically from blue agave) is technically a type of mezcal, but the variety that is currently sweeping the States is that famously smoky sip that can be produced from the fruit of about 30 varieties of agave plant. As with anything special, once it reaches popularity, companies seek to produce it as widely (and often cheaply) as possible, so it becomes all the more important to find a trusted brand that adheres to tradition and maintains high-quality standards. For mezcal available in the United States, Mezcal El Silencio is a top choice.
Mezcal El Silencio follows the traditional process of generations of mezcaleros in Oaxaca, Mexico, the true home of mezcal, producing both its black-bottled Espadín and its ultra premium Joven Ensamble. Espadín is smooth and delicious on its own, but is especially suited for mixing, when its fig and stone fruit flavors subtly enhance countless cocktails. El Silencio’s Joven Ensamble combines Espadín with two additional agaves, Tobasiche and Mexican, for an expert blend of sipping pleasure featuring green apple and floral notes with a peppery finish. A true lifestyle brand appealing to a cultured crowd, Mezcal El Silencio is ready to educate both the uninitiated and the connoisseur with a curated cocktail list, complete with recipes.
