Mezcal is generally enjoyed straight and not mixed but Mezcal El Silencio is making kick ass combinations with their product and we found out why. It’s palatable and just plan delicious. The Espadin version they sell on their site and across the United States is described as “Sexy” or “Kinki” according to some of their ad spots but we’d like to describe it as “explosive”. it really does feel like it is traveling from your throat down to your stomach and you’re feeling it along the way.
A saying attributed to Oaxaca regarding the mezcal is:
“Para todo mal, mezcal, y para todo bien, también.”
This translates to:
“For every ill, Mezcal, and for every good as well.”
