One of the few mezcals that are both organic and biodynamic. The Clásico from Fidencio is made using 100% espadín agave from Santiago Matatlán, Oaxaca. Fermented using ambient yeast and distilled using an old cognac style still, here modernity would only get in the way.

Tasting Notes

"A simple and quaint mezcal. It does not roar, it does not whisper. It is pleasing to the palate but it does not aspire to steal the show. The nose is earthy and rustic with such notes as wet soil, lemon and black pepper. The taste is constant; bright with lime, cinnamon, moderate smoke and mild tropical fruit notes. A compelling entry-level mezcal, suitable for novices and connoisseurs alike."
