About this destilado de agave

Chacolo Cenizo is made with Maguey Cenizo (Agave angustifolia) in the state of Jalisco. Cenizo, in this case, is one of the fourteen Agave angustifolia grown by this producing family. This agave takes about 10 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.


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.
