About this destilado de agave
El Destilado Papalome is made with agave Papalome (A. Angustifolia). This is made by maestro Amando Alvarez in the remote town of Santa Maria Ixcatlan, Oaxaca. The agave used in this mezcal are cooked in an underground pit oven with Encino Oak, mashed by hand with wooden mallets, and fermented in large rawhide sacks. Once fermented, the agave are double distilled in small clay pot stills.
While some of the El Destilado brand's agave distillates are sourced from some of the same producers as the 5 Sentidos brand, the El Destilado spirits brand is otherwise not directly related to the El Destilado restaurant in Oaxaca City. The brand was founded by Michael Sager and Marcis Dzelzainis, who own the Sager + Wilde Restaurant and Wine Bar in London.
