About this destilado de agave
Creador Tobala Descansado is made from maguey tobalá (Agave potatorum), that was harvested in Santa Ana Tlapacoyan, near maestro José Alberto’s pueblo San Bernardo Mixtepec, Oaxaca. The plants took 12-14 years to reach maturity. Originally from a production of 340 liters in 2019, 50 liters were set aside and rested (descansado) in glass for 4 years before being bottled and released for production. Resting in a neutral vessel such as glass allows the flavors and characteristics of the destilado to develop over time, resulting in round and very approachable agave spirits.
This bottling is available exclusively at Mezcaleria Tobalá in Austin, TX.
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.
