About this destilado de agave
Creador Lumbre + Espadin is an ensamble of these two Agave angustifolia varietals. Maestro José Alberto pairs these two agaves and uses a 50/50 mix to highlight the characteristics of each one. The agaves are harvested and then cooked together in el horno for 3-5 days. They are milled together by hand, and also fermented and then distilled together, making them a blend from the start of the process until the finish. Both agaves were cultivated in San Bernardo Mixtepec.
Batch JAEN1122 is a 600 liter release that combines two productions from March and May 2022. Each production produced 440 and 420 liters respectively.
Creador Agave Spirits
Creador Agave Spirits seeks out independent family producers who have little to no representation outside of their local markets – producers who want to make a transition to full-time production of destilado and need help getting their agave spirits to market.
Creador strives to support palenqueros and their communities by providing autonomy for the producers, as well as fair pricing. The company does not contractually obligate producers, nor negotiate price – what the palenqueros ask, they pay, and the company will advise if they think the spirits are underpriced. Creador profit-shares with the producers, providing transparency into the complex economics of selling spirits into the tiered alcohol-distribution systems prevalent in the US.
Creador translates to “creator” and is an homage to the artisan creators of agave spirits, and a tribute to the creators and makers in us all. De la mano y el corazón – from the hand and the heart.
