About this destilado de agave
This 5 Sentidos Tobaziche is made by Sergio Juarez Patricio and his son Luis Enrique in San Augustin Amatengo. The maguey Tobaziche used in this mezcal were harvested from approximately 4,500 feet above sea level. The agave spent four days cooking in an underground oven. Once cooked, the agave are crushed by a large stone tahona that is drawn by two bulls. After roasting, the agave ferment with open air yeasts for eight days. The agave were then single distilled in a copper refrescadera still. Batch ACL01-19 was just 81 bottles.
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.
