About this destilado de agave
5 Sentidos Coyote from Eduardo Cortez Perez was initially released as a California-only batch of maguey Coyote. This specific Coyote is thought to be a cross between Agave karwinskii and Agave Potatorum, which some other producers would refer to as a maguey Coyota. Eduardo is the son of “Tio Tello,” who is also bottled by Cinco Sentidos.
5 Sentidos is named after the five senses that their mezcaleros use to produce their agave spirits. The producers of this mezcal do not use any model machinery or tools, being guided only by their senses throughout the production process. The brand was launched by El Destilado restaurant in centro Oaxaca. The restaurant is known for it's creative menu, unique cocktails, and exception agave spirits. The brand is a curated tour of Mexico with a wide range of expressions that are made by some of the best mezcaleros in the region. Cinco Sentidos is uncertified mezcal and is labeled as "Destilado de Agave".
A note about the bottle shape: The short round bottles are the US release bottles. In other areas of distribution (e.g. Mexico, Canada, Japan) the bottles are the taller Bordelaise shape.
