El Destilado Tepextate is produced by Sergio Juarez Patricio and his son Luis Enrique in San Augustin Amatengo. The agaves were cooked in an underground pit oven, fermented for 7 days, and single distilled in a copper refrescadera still.

El Destilado

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.

Has that funkiness you find in many refrascador style mezcal. A different take on Tepeztate and from the same village where they make Banhez Tep but quite different surprisingly. Also, a great Palenque to visit if you ever make it to Amatengo. Clean, calm, with some pepper, wet earth/stone, and nice green fruits. The Barril and Tobala were also delicious.

Distilled January 2019

Second time coming back to this bottle. Smells of leather, acetone and dust. A bit funk/wild yeast, dried pasillas, Orkney peat-ish smoke. An explosion of immediate flavour on the palate: peppery pear, quince, poblano chile and green wine gums. There is also some lilac that makes me think of pisco from the italia grape. Medium viscosity mouthfeel.
Calm aftertaste, cool at first with eucalyptus and mint over pear and cucumber. A short burn and then leather and candy flavoured fruitiness comes back, the smoke aroma has transformed into something close to moritas, but is still discreet.
This is a stunning mezcal. I think it opened up significantly after a couple of weeks, so be patient.
