About this destilado de agave
Antonio Sonido, in his 70’s as of 2022, produces mezcal with his son in the dry, high-altitude village of Pantitlan, Guerrero. Antonio’s soft spoken nature allows his mezcal to speak for itself, and it is expressive. Scents of sweet herbs and cream corn compliment the berry and caramelized pastry flavors on the palate. The first batch as part of the Cinco Sentidos Guerrero Collection was bottled in April 2020 and the spirit has had time in glass to allow these flavor components to mingle and meld together, contributing to the texture and finish.
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”.
