The Espadin Agave, also known as Agave Angustifolia, is the most commonly used agave variety used to produce Mezcal. Espadín’s popularity is due largely to its high sugar concentration, which can yield larger volumes of spirit than other agave species (it takes about 20 pounds of Espadín to make a liter of mezcal, while some agaves can require more than triple that amount). Most Espadin Agaves are harvested between 6-8 years due to its scarcity of the plant and high demand from producers.
