Batch OE1 Tech Sheet

We're delighted to announce the arrival of our new batch of Espadín - OE1. It's the 2nd batch of our pure Espadín expression, and our first collaboration with Mezcalero Onofre Ortiz.


Onofre's palenque is situated in the town of Bramaderos in the Miahuatlán Valley, a short drive from Atenogenes' palenque on the Calle Pensamientos. Like Atenogenes' productions, his mezcals are full of the earthy minerals and floral sweetness which are characteristic of the terroir of Miahuatlán. He also takes a similar approach to production - each step of process is slow and considered - and the resultant mezcals are clean, rich, and elegantly balanced.


Like the previous batch of Espadín - Atenogenes' Batch PS1 - OE1 has notes of rosemary and thyme, with honeysuckle sweetness in the mid palette which fades out to a dry satisfying finish. There's also a touch more smoke and masa present - like a fresh tortilla cooked on an open fire. Delicious on its own or killer in our signature negroni.
