About this destilado de agave

Luneta Cuerno from the Navarro family is produced in the state of San Luis Potosi, Mexico. The Navarro family has been utilizing a unique clay pot still (campanilla) and other ancestral techniques for at least 4 generations. They are one of the last families in this region to maintain this 400+ year tradition. Daniel and Jesus gather wild Cuerno (Salmiana agave) from the desert hills of San Luis Potosi. These large and flavorful agaves typically mature in 15 to 16 years.

Luneta

Luneta bottles expressions that are made with a variety of wild and semi-cultivated agaves, in various states by different mezcaleros, each with distinct elaboration techniques yielding individual flavor profiles. Luneta believes that quality, not quantity, is what’s worth striving for. They value individuality, the beauty of imperfection that comes with hand made creations, and the people that bring unique perspectives to the world.

Batch 01/2022, Bottle: 64/82 48.5% abv
Got the opportunity to meet Jed Wolf who set up the brand and imports these offerings into the US. He was doing a tasting at Kodo in DTLA and many of the other destilados under his label are really good, I recommend seeking out the papalometl-cupreata blend if you can track down a bottle. I purchased this bottle at K&L Wines in Hollywood. This one has some classic salmiana aromas on those nose: green, vegetal, candle wax, and earth. Palate has some nice flavors that match that profile: prickly pear cactus, light brown sugar, clove, and stewed leafy greens. Heat is mild however the flavors do hang around a while. The bottles can run upwards of $70 for a 375s the 750s can be double that (the bottles are really beautiful too though I never think that justifies purchasing a bottle if the juice inside is not top notch). But do try these offerings if you get a chance to sample them. Really some great stuff in the Luneta line-up and those are worth the price.
