Batch: Tobasiche 2022-02, 47.02%
Of the many varietals of Agave karwinskii endemic to Santa Catarina Minas, none is more plentiful than tobasiche. With their skinny piñas and long stalks, the plants offer a high acid to sugar ratio that produces easily identifiable woody flavors and aromas.
The tobasiches used in this batch were part of a reforestation effort in the hills above Santa Catarina Minas, where Lalo reintroduced many plants that would grow and reproduce in the “wild.” and act as a cornerstone for a larger project to restore the area’s ecology.
