Madre is produced by Jose Ines Garcia Morales and his family. Their small palenque (mezcal distillery), resides in the rolling hills outside San Dionisio, where well-water and clean air are among the active ingredients in the process. Each step of making this mezcal is personal and hands-on. Jose’s father and brothers lift and cut the agaves, his mother blesses the agave hearts before cooking them in the earth, his wife plants new agaves on the land, and an extended group of uncles and cousins oversee the hours of distillation. Madre carries a hint of smoke with a sweet copal fragrance. Herbal notes of sage, earth and minerals appear on the tongue, with a lingering floral finish.
