Cinco Sentidos - La Colección Mixteca Edición 3 - Azul 46.9% ABV
This 310 liter batch of agave Azul (a. Tequiliana Weber) was distilled by maestro mezcalero couple Atelo Ramirez & Laura Arriaga in the town of Reyes Metzontla, Puebla. On a road-trip to Laura's native state of Morelos, the couple noticed fields of agave Azul, and decided to stop and inquire. They ended up purchasing a truck's worth of the cultivated agave to make this spirit. To do so, they roasted the agave in an underground conical pit oven for six days, using mesquite as firewood and pirúl leaves to insulate the oven. After cooking, Atelo hand-mashed the agave with a wooden mallet, dry-fermented the mash for four days, and then allowed it to ferment with spring water for an additional nine days. Laura and Atelo then distilled the fermented mash once in a hybrid still made of galvanized steel, clay, and copper and the allowed the "común" (low wine) to rest for a month before refining it in March 2022. Blended with heads, hearts, and tails by Maestro Atelo. Bottled May 2022.
"La Collecion Mixteca" is a curated selection of small-batch agave spirits crafted in the rustic distilleries of the mountainous Mixteca region of Oaxaca and Puebla. Each bottling explores the maestro mezcalero's interpretation of subjecting agave endemic to the region to peculiar production methods and styles that have largely fallen out of favor in modern times. A significant portion of sales from this collection will be used for palenque improvment projects.
