Los Siete Misterios Ensamble Espadín Tobalá Mezcal
- Joven Mezcal
- Mexico, 700ml
This ensamble is a blend of Espadin and Tobalá. Tobalá is known as king of the agaves because of its uniqueness. The agave itself is very different from most other varietals. It is physically smaller with drastically different leaves compared to Espadín and it can only be reproduced through seeds, unlike most agaves which can also produce offshoots. This makes Tobalá difficult to find and even harder to make into Mezcal since you need more of them compared to larger plants.

Born Mezcal Lovers
Inspired by the passion, traditions, and culture of their native Mexico, brothers Eduardo and Julio Mestre founded Los Siete Misterios in 2010 with the goal of making a Mezcal that represents the customs, culture, and passion of Mexico.
Eduardo and Julio spent years sampling Mezcal from villages across Oaxaca. They met local Maestro Mezcaleros who use traditional techniques honed over generations. In an effort to preserve this ancestral knowledge, Eduardo and Julio teamed up with Maestro Mezcaleros to collaborate on a contemporary approach to traditional Mezcal.
Beginning with highest quality agave plants, Los Siete Misterios follows ancestral methods including cooking in underground ovens, milling with wooden mallets, and often distilling with hand-made clay pots. This allows them to pursue their goal of respecting Mezcal traditions and customs while supporting local Mexican workers.
Siete Misterios seek to respect Mezcal traditions and customs. Their partnership with Maestros Mezcaleros across Mexico helps these families continue to create authentic, ancestral Mezcal and support local Mexican workers. They collaborate to ensure all their palenques, or distilleries, follow traditional production methods.
Joven Mezcal of varying alcoholic content.
Distilled with only 100% natural agave sugars that come from ripe plants.
Produced using traditional techniques: cooking in underground ovens, fermenting naturally, and distilling at least twice.
Artisanal and limited production to preserve the whole spirit, heritage, and tradition of Mezcal.
Every great Mezcal starts with the right production process. At Los Siete Misterios, they ensure every detail supports creating the highest quality Mezcal:
HARVEST - Maestros Mezcaleros only harvest agave plants that are fully matured. They wait until the plant produces, or is about to produce, its quiote (stem), which happens right before the agave dies.
COOKING - Agaves are cooked in traditional underground ovens made of earth and stones. Mezcaleros use local wood to fuel the fire and place river stones, which get extremely hot, on top. They layer plant matter over the stones, then the agave piñas, tarps, and soil for three to five days.
MILLING - Maestro Mezcaleros use two milling techniques. They either use a hand-carved wooden mallet or traditional Chilean Tahona horse to crush the agave.
FERMENTATION - They then place the juice and fibres in large wooden vats where they are exposed to open air. The local temperature and wild yeast naturally ferment the agaves. Siete Misterios does not add anything except pure spring water.
Siete Misterios use two main distillation techniques. Their artisanal Mezcals are distilled in copper pots while their ancestral Mezcals are distilled in ancestral clay pots. In both techniques, they uphold tradition by distilling twice.
