About this destilado de agave
Comunidad No. 8 – Bramaderos is a powerful and very unusual blend, distilled by Onofre Ortiz, of 6 wild magueyes (Arroqueño, Bicuishe, Coyote, Madrecuishe, Mexicano, and Tepeztate) against a calm backdrop of cultivated maguey Espadín. Onofre’s father, Don Beto, said that he had been saving this for himself. The batch was distilled December 9, 2021.
Comunidad is a brand from Hector Vasquez de Abarca, who ran production at Los Danzantes, and Ansley Coale, importer of mezcals and raicillas since 2004 and creator of the Mezcalero brand. They collaborated on Comunidad to find, bottle, and represent superb agave spirits with the intent of helping to preserve the society and culture from which they come. Society and culture create the depth that underlies these profound human achievements, but they are threatened by rapid commercialization.

Incredible mezcal! Sweet aromas of cherry candies, dried cranberry, and some light pepper. The palate is full and rich with notes of pickled jalapenos, raw sugar cane, almond flavoring, hot wax, and smoking candle wick. There’s a sweet softness to this that is difficult to put my finger on. This changes slightly every time I taste it, seemingly for the better each time.
