Welcome to Mezcalum, where tradition meets innovation in every bottle. As connoisseurs of mezcal, we're excited to share with you a unique take on a timeless classic: the Mezcalum Old Fashioned. Crafted with our artisanal mezcal, this cocktail isn't just a drink; it's a journey through the heart of Oaxaca. Let's dive into the essence of this concoction and learn why it's more than just a beverage—it's an experience.

What's the Story Behind the Old Fashioned?

The Old Fashioned is a cocktail steeped in history, originating in the early 19th century. Traditionally made with whiskey, sugar, water, and bitters, it's known for its simplicity and depth of flavor. Over the years, the Old Fashioned has evolved, with bartenders experimenting with different spirits to give this classic a contemporary edge. Our Mezcalum Old Fashioned honors this legacy of innovation by introducing the complex and smoky notes of mezcal.

Why Mezcalum in Your Old Fashioned?

At Mezcalum, our mezcal is not just any spirit. It's a labor of love and tradition, crafted from the rare and wild varieties of Espadin and Cuishe agave grown in the sun-drenched valleys of Oaxaca. Our Maestro Mezcalero, Carlos Méndez Blas, employs ancestral methods to create a mezcal that's rich in heritage and flavor. By incorporating Mezcalum into your Old Fashioned, you're not just mixing a drink—you're weaving a tapestry of Mexican culture and artisanal craftsmanship.

Mezcalum Old Fashioned Recipe


  • 2 oz Mezcalum Espadin & Cuishe Mezcal
  • 1 sugar cube (or 1/2 tsp of agave syrup for a more authentic touch)
  • 2 dashes of Angostura bitters
  • A splash of club soda (optional)
  • Ice cubes
  • Orange twist and a cherry, for garnish


  1. Prepare the Glass: Place the sugar cube in an Old Fashioned glass. Add the bitters and a splash of club soda (if using) to saturate the sugar cube. Use a muddler to crush the sugar to dissolve it into the bitters and soda.
  2. The Mezcal: Add 2 oz of Mezcalum Espadin & Cuishe Mezcal to the glass. Our mezcal's smoky complexity adds a unique twist to the classic Old Fashioned profile.
  3. Chill: Fill the glass with ice cubes and stir the mixture gently until well-chilled. This step is crucial for melding the flavors together while maintaining the integrity of the mezcal.
  4. Garnish: Express the oil of an orange twist over the glass, then drop it in along with a cherry. These garnishes add a hint of citrus and sweetness, complementing the mezcal's robust flavor.
  5. Enjoy: Sip and savor the rich, smoky, and slightly sweet nuances of your Mezcalum Old Fashioned.
