About this destilado de agave
5 Sentidos Espadin from Berta Vasquez is a limited release from this famed maestra mezcalera. Berta’s palenque is located in San Baltazar Chichicapa, Oaxaca. She cooks her agave in an underground pit oven, crushes the agave with a tahona, ferments with open-air yeasts in wooden tinas, and double distills in copper.
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.
