About this mezcal

Hacienda de Bañuelos Tepemete is the first mezcal made from wild agave Tepemete in Zacatecas to be exported out of Mexico. The piñas of the Tepemete maguey are exceptionally small compared to other species. This lack of size coupled with its scarcity has caused this plant to be overlooked in favor of higher yielding species. The Bañuelos family have revived artisanal methods of mezcal production for working with this agave. After being cooked in an underground brick oven for 72 hours, the cooked agaves are crushed with a tahona and fermented with wild yeasts before being double distilled.

Hacienda de Bañuelos

Hacienda de Bañuelos was founded in 1915 and is a fourth generation taberna (distillery). The Bañuelos family is leading the revival of mezcal production in the Mexican state of Zacatecas which is immediately to the north of Jalisco. Southern Zacatecas has a particular mineral driven terroir that shines in all of the Hacienda de Bañuelos expressions.

Lot 20. Bottle 329/414. Smells like pepperoni. Other aromas of mozzarella, gouda, and raw meats. This tastes a little spiny. It’s sharp. Not in a hot way but the finish and all flavors are quickly fleeting.
