Hacienda Oponguio Cupreata

Hacienda Oponguio Cupreata is produced by Maestro Mezcalero Miguel Angel Jaramillo Hernandez and his son Luis Angel Jaramillo Zuñiga.

About this mezcal

Hacienda Oponguio Cupreata is made with Agave cupreata. After the agave is cut, the agave is taken to an underground pit oven. Avocado and Oak wood is used to heat the oven, which covered with volcanic stone. The agave is placed on the stones and then covered with dirt. After 3-4 days the cooked agave is removed from the oven and is left 2 days to rest. Next, the agave is milled, followed by all-natural fermentation. The fermentation takes place in wooden tubs for 4-5 days. Finally, the agaves are double-distilled in a tarascan style still.

Hacienda Oponguio Mezcal

The Hacienda Oponguio story was born at the beginning of the 20th century when Juan Mejia Gomez began producing mezcal on the Riviera off Lake Patzcuaro in Oponguio Michoacán, Mexico. Two generations later, Juan Manuel Mejia Hernandez resumed the tradition and finally in 2015 the official Hacienda Oponguio brand was released. Maestro Mezcalero Miguel Angel Jaramillo Hernandez along with his son Luis Angel Jaramillo Zuñiga create each of the batches in their distillery.

Lote CUO 1/22 47% No other information on bottle sampled on 6/9/2024. The Cupreata’s that I’ve been sampling of late are all over the place and this one’s no exception. The Aromas out of the bottle are Browner than most almost like cooked Brown tropical fruit and spoiled agave with just a bit of sourness no smoke or alcohol flavors are really present. Flavors mostly follow the suit with spiciness Brown tropical flavors roasted fruits some of stingent sourness on the end and a pretty quick finish. This one is lacking the fresh tropical fruits and concentrates more on the dark earthy flavors and spices
