Espadín Capón (Agave angustifolia) is a mezcal made exclusively from the agave "Capado". This means that 100% of the piñas (agave hearts) used to make mezcal have developed a quiote, or flowering stem. When an agave flowers, a large amount of energy is required to develop the 20 foot tall flower. When the quiote is cut off by the maestros, the sugar used to grow the flower is concentrated in the piña. When harvesting agave for regular mezcal, the mother agave is harvested along with the baby agaves (hijuelos) that sprout from the mother plant. The baby agaves go in the oven with the mother agave, but aren't as productive as they are smaller and haven't flowered yet.

Only the largest and strongest mother plants are selected and used for processing to produce Espadín Capón. At Espadín Capón, the average weight is 90 kg per piña. The concentrated sugars obtained from cutting the agave flowers give Espadín Capón a sweeter and more complex taste with hints of floral and fruity notes. To make our regular Espadín we use 80% mother agaves and 20% baby agaves collected during the agave harvest. This Espadín is 100% grown in the San Luis Amatlán area.

Mezcalero comment

For the Espadín Capón, Maestros Marcos and Eleazar use only the largest, heaviest and most sugary agaves - the creme de la creme of the harvest. Capón means that the agave has reached its peak ripeness.
