The agave Espadín (agave angustifolia) grows all along the Mezcalero Strip in Oaxaca. It is the agave that grows the fastest and which is thanks to its high concentration of sugars the most efficient agave in producing mezcal ~ 10 kg of the agave fruit yield 1 liter of mezcal.
Noble Coyote's producer cultivates almost 100% of the Espadín mezcal being used. There are a vast array of agaves Espadín and the flavors of the mezcal made from these plants vary depending on the style of each maestro mezcalero and of the earth they grew on. San Luis Amatlán - where Noble Coyotes agave Espadín is grown - is famous for its agave-growing terroir. As a result, its mezcal Espadín successfully combines the exceptionally good earth with the practiced hand of Noble Coyote's maestro mezcalero.
For a very long time, Espadín has been the agave most commonly used to make mezcal primarily because of its fast growth and efficiency in yielding mezcal. It is now cultivated throughout Oaxaca. However, the conditions around the village of
San Amatlán give the agave Espadín we cultivate distinctive characteristics.
