About this destilado de agave

Agua del Sol Mexicano was produced by maestro mezcalero Francisco Garcia León, who was one of the original producers to inspire the creation of the mezcaleria CUISH. His family has made mezcal for several generations in San Guillermo, but in 1996 he emigrated to the US to support his family. He left behind several batches of mezcal which upon his return would be the basis for the creation of the CUISHE brand. He returned many years ago, and now produces mezcal using a horse-drawn tahona, sabino wood fermentors, and a copper still with refrescadera.

Agua del Sol

Agua del Sol was created by Felix Hernández Monterrosa and Adriana Correa, who are perhaps most well-known as the owners and operators of the Mezcales CUISH mezcalerias in Oaxaca City. Given the demands of the two mezcalerias, as well as some additional agave projects, the two of them created Agua del Sol with the intention of using to brand to present tiny batches of mezcal to the world.

Cinnamon cherry wood candy notes along with some bitter chocolate. My thoughts have changed a few times as I’ve tasted it but really enjoying it now. Definitely try it if you see it. An excellent value at around $80 USD for a 750ml bottle. Lot v/2020.

One of my favorite expressions right now – just a really clean Mexicano that comes in around $80 which is very reasonable. Baking spices stood out most to me with just a killer sweet potato/pumpkin pie hints I can’t get enough of. Miahuatlán has quickly become one of my favorite regions for production – looking forward to more of these small batch offerings in the future.

Batch No.: IV/20 Bottle No.: 12/300
Nose: Smoke is super sweet and has a tingling effect like pop rocks. Picking up that brand-new, athletic store rubber too. Great nose!

Palate: Honey sweet. A slight milkiness to it, medium viscosity. Finish has an awesome, hot-spicy heat to it – the perfect amount. All around this stuff is incredible!

Lot v/2020. Aromas of new tennis balls, new Nike running sneakers, flan, honey, papaya, cantaloupe, salt water taffy. The palate is rich with milk chocolate, cinnamon, fresh vanilla beans, and freshly cut jalapeno peppers. Medium viscosity and a bit of heat on the back of the palate. This is phenomenal, and I could sip it all day.

Tube of fresh tennis balls, menthol, sweet tropical fruits. Jalapenos, anise and peppercorns on the palate. Great heat, love the finish. This one is bright and crisp, really enjoyable.
