Mal Bien Presents El Tigre Wild Papalote Batch D (C6AG21) Tio Genio Atempa-Xulchuchio, GUERRERO Agave Spirits (Uncertified Mezcal) (750ml) (Previously $140)

SKU #1665769

Damian and Raquel, the founders of El Tigre, officially started the project in 2011, but the roots date back to the early 2000s, when Damian’s tío Chimino, an accomplished magueyero (agave farmer) first introduced him to the Patricio García family, and Damian, who had grown up in Mexico City and Detroit, began developing a greater interest in the culture of his family’s ancestral home in Atempa-Xulchuchio. Since then, the couple have hosted mezcal tastings in their home in Mexico City as way of spreading Atempa’s culture of mezcal, while using the proceeds to help support and preserve the web of agricultural and artisan communities that all play important parts in Atempa’s traditional social, religious and economic systems. Tío Chuchi, 77, and his wife Tía Victoria, 75, have made agave spirits in the same chivita (distillery) since getting married 50+ years ago. Before that, it was shared by their fathers and which their father’s shared before that, and Chuchi’s grandfather before that. El Tigre takes the time to note the details of harvest as well as distillation.
