Dixeebe Jabali Edition 03

53% ABV

Jabali (Agave Convallis) is a wild agave that grows throughout several states of Mexico and was not traditionally used for mezcal production. It is extremely spiky and grows in bunches so it was often used as fencing to keep grazing animals from straying. It also contains a high level of saponins, a sugar compound that produces a large amount of foam during fermentation and distillation making it very difficult to work with. This is an exceptional example of the agave as it has a spiced, peppery note and a bit of a feral/wild edge. The finish is fruity agave sweet, lengthy, with a complex spicy finish. 

About Mezcal Dixeebe
Dixeebe (deej-bay) is a word from the indigenous Zapotec language of the central valleys of Oaxaca that is an expression of gratitude and connectedness to the moment. It is a toast and an expression of thanks. It is also the name of a Mezcal brand founded by Don Valentin Cortes, a 5th generation Maestro Mezcalero and his son Asìs. Their palenque is in Santiago Matatlan, Oaxaca, the "Mezcal Capital of the World". They previously founded Mezcal El Jolgorio and Nuestra Soledad which they have since sold and Don Valentin had essentially retired. Asìs and some friends convinced him to begin production on a limited scale in 2022 and Mezcal Dixeebe was born. We are so grateful that Don Valentin has decided to share his amazing talents in mezcal production with us again!
