The Mezcal Vago Elote is made by Aquilino García López at his palenque in Candelaria Yegolé, Oaxaca. 100% Agave Espadín mezcal infused between the first and second distillation with toasted corn from Aquilino’s farm. It is the brand & family’s signature, unique to the entire category. Corn and Agave are the staples of Mexico. Mezcal Vago Elote represents the true essence of Mexico.
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 Elote is an excellent “gateway” mezcal for whiskey connoisseurs. It is outstanding on its own or as a key ingredient in craft cocktails.
