The rare pulquero varietal is typically used for the traditional production of the local Pulque beverage, a slightly sour, sweet agave nectar beer. These plants grow very large and take 14 to 16 years to mature. The exceptional distillery Senor Felix Hernandez Ruiz produced this one in July of 2021. It was roasted for 4 days underground before 1 day of dry fermentation and 3 days in a wooden vat with well water. Double-distilled on copper pots, this fresh pulquero exemplifies the rustic green character of this rarely used agave.

German Manzano Martinez's gorgeous palenque outside of the large town of Zoquitlan is extremely well organized. Clean and well manicured with agave dotting the property, the meticulously kept grounds hint at the quality of the exceptional mezcal produced at the Palenque Manzano.

We were very lucky to acquire this special batch of which only 90 half bottles will be available in California. The plants were harvested between 13 and 15 year...

One of two Paplometls we purchased from Melate in very contrasting styles. This one from Maestro Don Erubiel is from Zapotitlan in La Mixteca; this culturally distinct area encompasses parts of Oaxaca, Guerrero and Puebla. The palenque requires a harrowing six hour drive on mountainous roads to reach, but the quality of the mezcal is well worth the wait. This extremely delicious batch of Papalometl uses wild harvest agave between 8 to 13 years of age. Roasted underground and shredded in a gasoline powered mill, the long slow fermentation lasts 12 days be...

Augustin Guendelain Maya was one of Melate's first suppliers. He's been described as a mad scientist and is renowned as the local agave botanist. His extreme attention to detail, noting the subtle but significant reactions and minute physiological differences between seemingly identical flora, is truly remarkable. Augustin feels he was called to make mezcal and his connection to the land and the plants that give this product its soul is undeniable. Those who visit his small palenque in Miahuatlan will quickly see that he's profoundly fulfilled by working...

Don Israel’s palenque is situated in the picturesque village of Temelac Guerrero. Just 45 minutes outside of the city of Taxco. His exceptional mezcal has been reserved exclusively for local consumption until very recently and his style is completely uninfluenced by the tastes or demands of outsiders. Don Israel typically has a few offerings on hand, like Guerro’s most popular cupreata varietal, but it is the sacatoro varietal that is truly unique to this area. The endemic sacatoro makes exceptional and unique mezcal whose prowess cannot be overstated. T...

David Herrera Rivera lives in Santa María Ixcatlán in the Canada region of Northwest Oaxaca. On the boarder with La Mixteca, this tight-knit family not only live together but also work together with cooperation and cohesiveness being the foundation of their personal and professional endeavors. Despite being just 25 years old Don David assumed the roll as the "boss" working with his parents and siblings to craft extremely traditional mezcals from local varietals.
