About this mezcal
Macurichos Cirial / Coyote Puntas is produced using maguey Cirial (Agave karwinskii) and maguey Coyote (Agave americana) in Santiago Matatlán, Oaxaca, México. The harvested agave plants are cooked in an earthen oven, milled using a stone tahona mill, fermented in wooden vats, and distilled twice using clay pot stills, which is different from most of this producer’s mezcal. This puntas is the first cut off the still.
Led by maestro mezcalero Gonzalo Martinez, Mezcal Macurichos is dedicated to the protection of the cultural tradition and the agricultural heritage of agave within the iconic mezcal production community of Santiago Matatlán, Oaxaca, Mexico. The family employs numerous neighbors and is one of the rare distillers the area who still produce using Ancestral methods, including clay pot stills. Gonzalo and his brothers cultivate their own diverse fields of agave – planting from seed and reforesting the diminishing wild agave populations.
