About this mezcal
Carta de Amor Tobala was crafted by third generation maestro mezcalero Erasto Martinez and his team using wild-harvested maguey Tobalá that was sourced from the highlands at an elevation averaging around 5000 feet. This Carta de Amor Tobalá Silvestre 2019 was crafted in the traditional method in Tlacolula de Matamoros, Oaxaca. The team used earthen pit ovens using oak for cooking the agaves, open air pinewood fermentation vats, and a copper still. The mezcal was rested for over two years before being bottled.
Carta de Amor Mezcal
“Carta de Amor desde Oaxaca” literally translates to “Love letter from Oaxaca.” The team responsible for creating this brand completed the final steps of this passion project during the pandemic, which greatly limited their ability to visit Oaxaca in person during this time. The final sourcing steps were completed by mail and every package they received from Oaxaca was like a “love letter.” Hence the name for the brand.
