About this mezcal
Dos Hombres Tobala is made with maguey Tobala (Agave Potatorum) in San Luis del Rio, Oaxaca. The agave used in this mezcal are cooked in underground pit ovens, milled by horse-drawn tahona, fermented for 7-10 days with mountain spring water, and double distilled in copper stills. According to their website, the Tobala plants used in this batch were carefully grown for almost 25 years. This mezcal’s terroir comes from the Copal trees in the region which impregnate and perfume the soil where Tobala agaves are grown. Copal is a sacred tree which resin is used by people of the village to purify and bless the environment. This mezcal has notes of plums, chocolate and local lily flowers.
