Mezcal Vago EloteIn Fine Spirits
The Elote uses the same Agave Espadín grown above Aquilino’s palenque in Candelaria Yegolé as the Mezcal Vago Espadín, but is infused with toasted corn. It has traditionally been made for special occasions like weddings or baptisms. The corn never ferments, it is strictly used as a flavor infusion, therefore the Mezcal Vago Elote is a 100% agave spirit. The batch is then distilled a second time, resulting in a clear young mezcal with a subtle Mexican corn flavor. The Elote has a beautiful mouthfeel with a little more body than the Mezcal Vago Espadín. The corn infusion is subtle. The aroma has hints of indigenous Mexican corn and toasted nuts. The Mezcal Vago Elote represents the true essence of Mexico.
