El Tigre - Tío Genio 2022 50% ABV

For 2022, the San José festivities marked the beginning of the production season. For these celebrations, El Tigre offered mezcal to our patron saint through the Atempa Church committee, Xulchu held three days of festivities in his honor. During the first runs of the year, the pozolera pot used for the coxcomite was renewed after decades of use with the help of Na María, from Atzacualoya, thanks to Martín’s recommendation. Tío Genio began his labrada at the beginning of April. During this year, an increased threat of several pests found in the wild maguey plants was documented. This year, a total of 9 ovens were uncovered and distilled.

By the beginning of June, maguey seedlings were obtained. After each magueyero had finished with their production they would spread the seeds throughout the hills. After a while, it was seen that only a small percentage of these plants managed to survive.
Tío Genio chose matured capon maguey papalote in red soil for this production. By the end of the season, he also celebrated his birthday in style, where there was music, mole and mezcal he composed from that year. 2022 was a festive year, in which what was seen and learned in the exploration of Oaxaca was pondered, a season that allowed us to take a glimpse at the challenges of the future for the sustainability of tradition, it is important to
question and experiment from knowledge and commit to the coming years.
