The agave is cultivated on Fidencio's estate in Santiago Matatlán, Oaxaca. The Jimenez family discovered a small vein of chalky, white soil on their farm. They planted 3 small batches of Espadín in the unique soil. The chalky, Champagne-esque soil gives the Tierra Blanca a deep minerality that is not tasted in other mezcals. The agave is harvested after 12 years. It is pit roasted over black oak for five days. This mezcal is double distilled and undiluted.
