About this destilado de agave
5 Sentidos Tobala from Atenogenes Garcia is produced in San Isidro Guishe, Miahuatlan, Oaxaca. Atenogenes and his son Jose distilled a “single tina” 34-liter batch (Lot BIEN02) from about 600 kilograms of wild harvested Tobala (Agave potatorum). This Lot BIEN02 was a selected batch pick for the Bien Trucha Group in Chicago, IL.
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.
