About Mezcal El Rey Zapoteco Cuishe
This mezcal is made by El Rey Zapoteco from the cuishe agave (also known as cuish or cuixe). Cuishe is a subspecies of the Karwinskii family. It is a wild agave which matures in 9 to 12 years.
The cuishe grows in a long, slender stalk, which can make it difficult to harvest.
It produces a mezcal that has intense mineral and citric flavors with spicy notes. It is perfectly balanced with soft herbal notes that linger on the palate.
