Cinco Elementos Mezcal Artesenal Joven Espadín

Trustworthy and convincing mezcal for the people

Mezcal Cinco Elementos Espading is an authoritative mezcal produced from 100% maguey Espadin in San Lorenzo Albarradas, Oaxaca. Espadin is by far the most commonly used agave in mezcal, due to its short maturity time (6-8 years), and rich agave juice.

“Cinco Elementos” who makes this product, are cooking their i agave in an underground oven – a socalled “Horno de Piedra”. When cooked, the agaves are mashed with a tahona, fermented in pine wood tanks, and then double distilled in copper alembic stills.
Made by third generation mezcaliers, Faustina Garcia and Luiz Martinez, this fresh and no-nonsense mezcal will appeal to most people.

Tasting Notes

Smoky and fullfilling with an almost fat and oily feel. The baked agave makes for a lot of the notes, but there is also some minerals/earth to be found.


The work involved in making an artisanal mezcal using earth ovens and tahona is large and almost completely manual. The agaves are harvested one by one by men using traditional coa’s. The agaves are cut up by hand using axes and the entire baking process takes huge amounts of really, really hard work and lots of experience. It is an art working an earthoven, because the mezcalero has to keep an eye on it all the time keeping the heat not too high and not to low. Making sure there is not too much smoke and not too little.

But in the end – all that work and experience is what makes an exceptionally good product, and the Cinoc Elementos Mezcal Espadin IS a good product!
