About this destilado de agave

Chacolo Ixtero Verde is made with Maguey Ixtero Verde (Agave angustifolia) in the state of Jalisco. Ixtero Verde 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.

Distilled in April 2019. Super sweet and candied nose. Aromas of bubblegum, cherry Airheads, Jolly Ranchers, and Nerds. This smells like the candy I’d be eating at a movie theatre at age 13. The palate is quite a bit different. Notes of sweet barbeque sauce, gravy, chipotle, and champagne. This is phenomenal.
