Mal Bien Felix Ramirez Espadin Mezcal
Just as the bottles in the Mal Bien lineup represent the people and places that produce them, the Mal Bien brand represents our experiences, passions, and palates. We love the spirits in our bottles and look forward to sharing their stories with you.
FÉLIX RAMÍREZ MENDEZ
YOGANA, EJUTLA, OAX.
The village of Yogana is located at the southern end of the Ejutla district of Oaxaca. Like all of his neighbors, Félix is a full-time farmer. Unlike many of his neighbors, Félix is also a part-time mezcalero, working with several species of agave that he plants between rows of seasonal crops, and distills on equipment unique to Ejutla that allow his spirits can reach proof in a single pass. We first met Félix, when we stopped at his wife’s store, and he offered us a pour of espadín he had in an old olive oil bottle.
