About this destilado de agave
Cinco Sentidos Ancho was created by a small cooperative in the village of Xochipala Guerrero. Together they harvested from their region wild agave “Ancho”, colloquially referred to as such due to its broad leafed “pence”. In response to seeing trees in the region be chopped down but not replanted, the co-op decided that a steam oven would be a more environmentally responsible method to cook their agaves.
5 Sentidos (or Cinco Sentidos) is named after the five senses that their mezcaleros use to produce their agave spirits. The producers of this mezcal do not use any model machinery or tools, being guided only by their senses throughout the production process. The brand was launched by El Destilado restaurant in centro Oaxaca. The restaurant is known for it’s creative menu, unique cocktails, and exception agave spirits. The brand is a curated tour of Mexico with a wide range of expressions that are made by some of the best mezcaleros in the region. Cinco Sentidos is uncertified mezcal and is labeled as “Destilado de Agave”.
