La Medida Arroqueno is made with 100% arroqueno agave produced by Antonio Cortés Aragón. It is a gentle, herbal mezcal from La Medida and has spicy aromas of caramel, black pepper, cloves and cinnamon, before developing hints of green olives and laurel. This agave is harvested at 1,600 meters above sea level. It’s traditionally produced in San Luis Amatlán, Miahuatlan, Oaxaca.
Mezcales La Medida brings together more than 46 Oaxacan producers. Their mezcal is made in small palenques with over 450 years of tradition and culture. The brand is run by Julián Vidal Gómez Rodríguez, who began working with mezcal over 40 years ago. Throughout his career he has worked with brands like Monte Alban, Benevá, and Del Maguey. He focuses heavily on mezcal's mysticism and the traditional production methods that have been used for hundreds of years. Some of their mezcal is certified, while other releases go by "aguardiente de agave." Each batch is different. Check your bottles for details.
