Tomas Artesanal Tepeztate
2022 lot production of 504 bottles.
Tezpeztate has a bold, complex flavor profile. Tomas Artesanal mezcal Tepeztate is made with 100% Wild Maguey Tepeztate. Maguey Tepeztate is a prized wild agave that can take up to 25 years to mature! It is often difficult to harvest given its penchant to grow in very inaccessible locations such as steep hillsides and directly out of the face of rocky cliffs.
Our artisanal mezcal Tepeztate comes from Santa Ana del Rio, a remote village 50 miles from Oaxaca City. There are about 500 inhabitants of this small community, and most are involved in the production of agave and mezcal.
The agave is traditionally cooked in an earthen pit oven, milled by horse-drawn stone tahona, and double distilled in a copper still.
100% of our profits from the sale of this expression go to support agave sustainability programs.
We encourage you to savor each sip of this mezcal Tepeztate, knowing the time mother nature took to grow the agave and the hand-crafted skill that went into producing it.
