Fidencio Clásico is distilled twice in a traditional, wood fired, simple Alembic still. This still is very similar to the stills used in Cognac. This Mezcal is made by mezcalero Enrique Jimenez in Santiago Matatlán, Oaxaca. This Mezcal has a delicate taste of wood smoke and green pepper scents. It has a flavor profile of tobacco, tar, and pine.
Fidencio Mezcal has four generations of knowledge and they use their own estate grown agave. Fabrica de Amigo del Mezcal is the name of the distillery/palenque that produces Fidencio Mezcal. Fidencio Jiménez, the namesake for Fidencio Mezcal, started making mezcal over 100 years ago when he moved to Santiago Matatlán, Oaxaca. He began to live the life of a Mezcalero, learning from peers and by trial-and-error. He worked closely with his son Enrique to perfect their craft and to pass down their knowledge to the next generation. In those days, even the equipment was from the land: clay pots for fermentation, distillation & storage and river reeds for tubing.
