Mezcal: El Silencio Espadín

by Andrew Chalk

Founded in 2013 by Mexico City Natives Fausto Zapata and Vicente Cisneros, Mezcal El Silencio has played an integral role in blazing the new mezcal trail and spearheading the subsequent “mezcal boom” in the US. Through demystified storytelling that embraces the celebration of a more “Avant Garde” Mexico, El Silencio revived the ancient art of mezcal, pioneering a unique approach to deliver the hand-crafted spirit to a new generation of creative drinkers and cultural innovators.

Whether you’re simply looking to put a mischievous spin on the traditional cocktail experience, or take a plunge down the mezcal rabbit hole, El Silencio Espadín is the ultimate catalyst for discovery for agave novices and aficionados alike.
