Availability: In stock


Refined and elegant. A thoughtful gift for Mezcal aficionados.

+ FLAVOR PROFILE: This agave offers a powerful, unique aroma dominated by floral characteristics. Herbaceous aromas, with a touch of wet stone on the nose, accompanied by grapefruit zest, orange flower and pine. Fresh florals, white pepper and minerals are highlighted on the palate with prominent notes of spice on the finish.

+ FUN FACTS: A subspecies of the Marmorata Family of agave, Tepeztate has a very distinct, erratic leaf structure and flourishes best on the sides of steep, rocky cliffs. The Tepeztate produces beautiful quiotes at the end of life which flower a rich yellow before turning to seed.

On the steep precarious hillsides of Oaxaca and Guerrero, several varieties of agave, indigenous to the region, grow wild - and are heavily sought after by the local mezcaleros. These varietals produce flavors that are exotically intense, with rich earth tones and savory smokiness. From the heart of the maguey these flavors are traditionally extracted to produce mezcal that is wildly refined.
