Drinking Mezcal made with Mexicano is a unique experience. Though exact numbers are unknown, some speculate that there are seven or more sub-varieties of Mexicano, including Mexicano Penca Larga, Mexicano Penca Corta, Mexicano Liso, Chontal and Amarillo Grande. Each-- like grapes to wine--yield different varietal characteristics.

Using 10-year-old wild and semi-wild agave grown within an hour's drive of the palenque, QQRQ's Mexicano is crafted in Santiago Matatlán by Carlos Méndez, the sixth-generation Mezcalero behind QQRQ's house Mezcal. A passionate advocate of sustainability, Méndez collects wild seeds from the hills, cultivating and nurturing them in safe conditions before reintroducing these plants to the wild.

This has a lovely, delicate and earthy quality and a light citric note on the nose, with a layered palate offering bursts of cured meat over a sweetly smoky mesquite base. The finish is long and fragrant with a stirring undercurrent of charred agave offset by refreshing bitterness.
