The Madre brand was created by Tony Farfalla in a story reminiscent of many in the mezcal world. He fell in love with Jose Morales’ mezcal and kept pouring it for friends until the idea of a business beckoned. That story started back in 2014 but it really ramped up in the past three years. As the brand expanded from it’s LA roots, so did the distillery which grew from Jose Morales’ single still to five stills today which are operated by his family. Per Fleming “we want to produce mezcal in a way that’s right for the community” so their focus has been slow and steady expansion. In the future Madre plans on expanding to other producers in order to maintain that focus on quality.
Crystal clear in colour. Lush agave-forward bouquet with notes of vanilla, honey, baking yeast and dill. Rich and honest roasted agave with a tiny hint of barro clay minerality. The palate brings sweetness of roasted agave is balanced by peppery, chalky and a hint of smoky notes. Lingering floral and earthy finish.
