About this destilado de agave

Mal Bien Papalote Reposado en Vidrio from Don Tomás and his son Emiliano Gutiérrez was produced in the community of Chilapa de Alvarez, Guerrero. Don Tomás and his son Emiliano are third and fourth generation mezcaleros in the hills above Chilapa de Alvarez. Like many of their peers, the Gutiérrez family points to the quality their maguey as the determining factor in the quality of their destilados. To ensure that continues, the family has invested in a nursery program that currently includes 50,000+ papalote seedlings in their care.

Batch 0414TG was rested in glass for seven years before being bottled for distribution.

Mal Bien Mezcal

Since 2016, the Mal Bien team has been traveling Mexico, driving off the map and into mountains filled with treacherous roads, police officers of questionable moral character, feral dogs, indigenous languages, narcos, ancient relics, machete wielding protestors, insect based meals, mudslides, blockades, corrupt politicians, and many of the world's kindest, funniest, most brilliant people. In addition to some hard to believe stories, they've connected with a wide variety of traditional producers, whose mezcal is now bottled and exported under the Mal Bien name.

Lot 0414TG. I’m in love. Big aromas of roasted cacao, dry hay, sage, sea salt, jalapeno, and dark cherries. The palate is so rich and elegant, silky yet viscous. Similar notes on the palate as were on the nose: chocolate, tanned leather, salt, grilled jalapeno, and the addition of some spearmint and peppermint. Part of the beauty of this mezcal is it’s subtly. The surface layer, first-impression, is fantastic, but the more I sip and smell this, the deeper and more nuanced it gets. This is fantastic!
