About Mal Bien Espadín Mezcal

Mal Bien “White Tape” Espadín is a classic valles centrales Oaxacan mezcal produced by a fourth generation distiller, bottled by spirits geeks, and celebrated by bartenders across the US for its depth of flavor, unique “anti-branding branding,” and transparency. It’s mezcal as you find it in the place where it's made; nothing more and nothing less. 

Tasting Notes for Mal Bien Espadín Mezcal

White tape brings a balance of tropical fruit, leather, earth and smoke that make it great on its own and in stirred cocktails. At 91 proof, it has the punch to shine through in citrus cocktails

Selected as a recommended spirit to pair with Shaker & Spoon’s Mezcalloween III: A Shocker in Oaxaca Box.

Recommended by: Stacey Swenson, creator of the Red-Handed Ripper

Mal Bien Espadín Mezcal is a beautiful, easy-drinking mezcal that is true to the place and people who created it. As Stacey says, “The soft smokiness in this bottle doesn’t overpower the other ingredients in your cocktail, but the higher alcohol content definitely makes all its characteristics pop! It’s a mezcal that plays well with others.”

Suggested Serves

There’s nothing more frustrating than finding an approachably priced base spirit whose flavor you love, only to find that it doesn’t get along with any of the modifiers you’d like to mix it with. Mal Bien “White Tape’s” balanced profile and 45.5% ABV make it an easy plug-and-play in all your favorite classics and new school cocktails.
