About this destilado de agave

Chacolo Lineño Puntas is made with maguey Lineño (Agave angustifolia) in the state of Jalisco. Lineño is one of the fourteen Agave angustifolia grown by this producing family. This agave takes about 6 years to reach maturity, with 3 additional years of capon. The agave are cooked in an underground oven and milled by hand with axes. Once cooked and milled, the agave are fermented naturally in wooden tinas with mountain spring water. Finally, they are double distilled in a Filipino style still. This specific release is the “Puntas,” which is a higher ABV cut from the still.


The Partida family, lead by Don Macario, has been making their iconic “mezcales” for 5 generations in Zapotitlan de Vadillo, Jalisco, however due to legalities they can neither call their product mezcal nor tequila. They are renowned among mezcaleros and mezcal aficionados for the amazing spirits that are meticulously made from the 15 different agave varietals that they have been collecting from their region for three generations. These varietals include 14 A. angustifolia sub varietals and 1 A. rhodacantha sub-varietal.

Batch pick for Suerte restaurant in Austin. Tasted of fresh strawberries, orange marmalade, and dried papaya. Additional notes of slate, cold sea salt breeze, and crushed mint leaves. Aromas of chalky minerals and raw dry earth. Soft and velvety for the high abv.
