Madre Mezcal Ensamble: Unveiling the Depths of Agave in a 20cl Bottle

For the adventurous spirit seeker or the curious mezcal novice, The General Wine proudly presents the Madre Mezcal Ensamble - a 20cl bottle brimming with the essence of Oaxaca, Mexico. This artisanal mezcal, crafted by the Morales family, is a symphony of flavour waiting to be explored.

A Legacy in Every Bottle

Hailing from San Dionisio in Oaxaca, the heartland of mezcal production, Madre Ensamble honours generations-old traditions. Espadín and Cuishe agaves, meticulously selected at their peak maturity, are roasted in earthen pits lined with hot stones. This time-tested method imbues the spirit with a subtle smokiness, a hallmark of mezcal.

The crushed agave hearts are then fermented in open-air wooden vats using wild yeast. This natural process allows the unique characteristics of the agave and the surrounding environment to shine through. Finally, the fermented mash is distilled in a copper pot still, culminating in a mezcal rich in character and complexity.

A Tasting Journey for the Senses

Pour yourself a measure of Madre Ensamble and embark on a captivating tasting adventure. As you raise the glass to your nose, the aroma unfolds, revealing a delightful interplay of smoke and earth. Hints of citrus and herbal notes peek through, adding an intriguing complexity.

The first sip is a revelation. The smokiness, gentle and alluring, dances on the tongue. Earthy tones emerge, reminiscent of freshly turned soil and damp leaves. A wave of minerality washes over the palate, a testament to the volcanic soils of Oaxaca.

But Madre Ensamble is more than just smoke and earth. A touch of sweetness, like ripe melon, peeks through, adding a delightful balance. The herbal notes from the wild fermentation become more pronounced, offering hints of rosemary and thyme. As the flavours linger, a subtle creaminess emerges, leaving a smooth and satisfying finish.

Beyond the Sip: Serving Suggestions

Madre Mezcal Ensamble is a versatile spirit, perfect for sipping neat, savouring the full spectrum of its flavours. For a truly traditional experience, enjoy it alongside slices of orange and a sprinkle of sea salt. The orange cuts through the smokiness, while the salt enhances the earthy and mineral notes.

If you're looking for a smoky twist on a classic cocktail, Madre Ensamble makes a phenomenal base for a Mezcal Margarita. Simply swap out tequila for mezcal in your favourite margarita recipe and discover a whole new dimension of flavour. The smokiness complements the lime juice and sweetness, creating a truly unique and satisfying drink.

For the adventurous mixologist, Madre Ensamble opens a world of cocktail possibilities. Experiment with smoky infusions, herbal syrups, and fresh, seasonal fruits to craft your own signature concoction.
