“ Produced in the sparse lands of Sierra Madre Oriental, this region creates a unique mezcal with great character.”
100% maguey ‘papalote‘ / Agave Cupreata
Double Distilled in copper pots
“Aromas: Tropical fruits, with notes of cooked agave;
Flavors: Sweet agave, briny notes, papaya, with gentle smoke”
This wild agave Cupreata, known as Papalote or Ancho, grows wild below the deciduous forest and oak trees.
This agave takes between 7 and 10 years to reach maturity, and will takes approximately 14-17kg of agave to produce 1 liter of mezcal.
With much pride we sustainably harvest these wild magueyes.
Don Oscar Obregón, born into a mezcalero family, is the 4th generation in his lineage to be distilling mezcal. His attention for detail in his special fábrica, gives this complex agave a level of quality rarely seen in any mezcal.
