About this destilado de agave
Aguerrido Zacate Limon Puntas from Erika Meneses is produced in Atempa, Guerrero using Agave cupreata. Doña Erika cooks her 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. In this release, she distills the agave with lemongrass. This bottling of puntas is the first cut off the still, having the highest ABV. ABV and time aged in glass will vary by batch. Check your bottle for details.
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.
