Espadin

Victorioso’s Espadin (A. Angustifolia) Mezcal uses only mature agave, which can takes up to 12 years before reaching full maturity & harvesting begins, known as Capon Agave.  These Capon Agaves result in a richer intricate flavor.  Our Espadin has an expressive aroma of roasted agave, fruits and  herbs  backed  by  light  smoke  and  Dulce  de  leche.  The palate offers complex, harmonious notes of orange peel, melon, chamomile flower and honey.

The Espadin Agave, also known as Agave Angustifolia, is the most commonly used agave variety used to produce Mezcal. Espadín’s ubiquity is due largely to its high sugar concentration, which can yield larger volumes of spirit than other agave species (it takes about 20 pounds of Espadín to make a liter of mezcal, while some agaves can require more than triple that amount). Most Espadin Agaves are harvested between 6-8 years due to its scarcity of the plant and high demand from producers.
