Pungent and steely, the mineral rich and floral aromas are heady and enticing.
Bright acidity is refreshing and pairs nicely with the red chile spice at the fore. Flavors of orange blossom, hibiscus, light caramel and tomatillo are balanced throughout, with a satiny texture that leaves the palate slightly tingling.
Produced traditionally with in-ground stone horno, wild open air fermentation, tahona, and copper pot distillation at the family palenque in Santiago Matatlan. Agaves were sourced from Santa Maria Zoquitlan. Distilled 3 times, this batch of 1,680 liters from 2016 was aged 20 months in stainless steel.
