Process

Harvest

 

Mature piñas are selected, which for more than 8 years have remained in the field. Cut leaves or pencas of the heart of the maguey with axes and machetes.

Process

Cooking

 

The oven is lit the day before at night with dry tepehuaje wood where the river stones are heated. The next morning wet bagasse is added to the stones and later the pineapples split into halves and thirds, the oven is covered with sacks and soil. The goal is for the maguey sugars to be transformed into fermentable sugars.

Process

Milling

 

The maguey is chopped into smaller pieces to be ground with the tahona  pulled by horse, fibers and juices are obtained.

Process

Fermentation

 

In pine and sabino tubs or tinas, the mashed maguey and spring water are added, where the microorganisms will naturally converted into a fermented mosto until the tepache as known in the community is obtained. Natural and native yeasts in the region play a very important role in this process which goes from 7 to 10 days.

Process

Distillation

 

Once the tepache is ready, the mostos are heated and condensed. The copper stills are loaded to distill 2 times, the first, you get a product called ordinario, then it is again distilled to rectify and get a tasty mezcal

Process

Bottling & Labeling

 

Each bottle is carefully hand filled, labeled and numbered carefully with lots of love. They’re after packed and sent to their destinations to be enjoyed.
