About this destilado de agave
Aguerrido Cupreata from Antonio Sonido is made with Agave cupreata in Pantitlán, Guerrero. Don Antonio cooks his agave in a pit oven, mills the cooked agave using a shredder, ferments the agaves with open air yeasts, and double distills in a copper alembic still.
Mezcal Aguerrido is a brand that comes from the heart of the state of Guerrero, one of the least represented mezcal producing states due to the difficulties with narco-traffickers in the area. The brand is a union of maestros mezcaleros from Chilapa, Guerrero including Don Refugio, Don Ciro (R.I.P.), Don Tomás, Don Benigno, Dona Gabina, y Don Antonio.

Very clean cupreata, smells of fresh sugarcane, dust, light smoke. Green chartreuse flavours, cucumber, cocoa nibs — more crisp than most cupreatas I have tried but not thin. Medium mouthfeel, good structure. 2021 batch, 49,7% ABV, 50cl bottle. Not quite the same 2021 batch COak mentioned, seems it was bottled in Europe.
2021 batch. Been a huge fan of Antonio’s juice, he makes consistent, delicious mezcal, bombed with flavor. This one isn’t too far from his espadin in terms of flavor. I get green apples, hazelnut, and coffee on the palate. It is soft and has delicious dark flavors.
