About this destilado de agave

Aguerrido Zacate Limon from Erika Meneses is produced in Atempa, Guerrero using Agave cupreata.

In this release, she distills the agave with lemongrass.

Aguerrido Mezcal

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.
