Fidencio Tierra Blanca Mezcal, 750ML
Fidencio Tierra Blanca is made from 100% agave Espadín that is cultivated on the Jimenez estate in Santiago Matatlán, Oaxaca. This agave is harvested after 12 years and pit roasted over black oak for five days. The Jimenez family discovered a small vein of chalky, white soil on their farm, and they planted 3 small batches of Espadin in the unique soil. The chalky, Champagne-esque soil gives this Mezcal a deep minerality that is unavailable in other Mezcals.
