Our De La Tierra (of the land) collection of mezcal copitas reflect the colors found in the mountainous landscape of Oaxaca, Mexico. These porcelain clay mezcal sipping cups are inspired by the culture that permeates the ritual history of mezcal. From the story of Mayahuel and the 400 rabbits to the endless amounts of ailments mezcal is said to remedy, our handmade porcelain stamped copitas pay homage to this liquors’ elusive history of magic, mystery and ritual celebration.
The design inspiration for our copitas is a combination of the Jicara, a hollowed out small gourd that the master mescalero uses to test the alcohol content in their mezcal, and from the Veladora, a catholic votive candle holder with a cross etched into the bottom. “Hasta no ver la cruz” (until I see the cross) is said frequently as a toast.
Each batch of mezcal has its own individual expression of terroir; the taste derived from the place the agave was grown, fermented and distilled. Mezcal is special in this regard and it’s what differentiates it from any other spirit. The shape of these copitas have been designed with a curved lip in order to contain the aroma from the liquor. Mezcal is tasted with the nose! Additionally, this design is meant to influence the flow of liquid into the mouth, encouraging you to sip slowly, and allow the spirit to reveal itself to you.
