About this destilado de agave
5 Sentidos Tobaziche from Tio Pedro was released as one of three special editions for Chicago’s West Lakeview Liquors. This ancestral spirit was distilled by Tio Pedro Hernandez Arellanes in Santa Catarina Minas, Oaxaca. Tio Pedro hand-mashed approximately 30 cooked Tobaziche hearts with a wooden mallet, before fermenting them with naturally occurring yeasts in a pine vat. The agave was then double distilled in small clay pots.
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.
