About this destilado de agave

Cuentacuentos Azul produced by Mezcalero Laurentino Santos utilizes 100% Agave tequiliana. Laurentino distills at his palenque in El Yanito, Santa Catarina Coatlán in the town of San Andrés Niño, Ejutla. After cooking for 75 hours, the cooked maguey is milled by hand, fermented naturally for 5 days, and double distilled in copper pots. The final spirit is adjusted with colas. Lot LSMA01 was produced in March 2023.


Cuentacuentos curates small-batch traditional mezcals and destilados de agave from producers across the state of Oaxaca. Cuentacuentos released its first 6 mezcal expressions in 2018; future releases from the brand will change over time and include non-certified mezcals. The logo and bottle artwork (by artist Cesar Ruiz Conseco) features an opossum or tlacuache in Spanish. The tlacuache on the logo is El Viejito, the little old man opposum who stole mezcal from the demons as a service to humanity. The tlacuache ranks with the jaguar, eagle, and burro in importance in Zapotec, Taina, and Mexican mythologies. The Cuentacuentos motto is Mezcal brings people together, stories make us friends.

Lot LSMA01. Aromas of chalk, copper, salt, bran, rolled oats, and vanilla cake. The palate is soft and delicate. Notes of lilac, eucalyptus, aloe, green tea, stewed vegetables, and chardonnay. This is nice and a step outside of what I’ve tasted from Cuentacuentos in the past.
