About this destilado de agave

Mal Bien Papalote is made by Don Antonio Sonido and his son Don Lorenzo Sonido using Papalote (Agave cupreata) grown on the family’s lands in the community of Pantitlán. The two are best known for the large supply of Maguey Espadin grown on their property and originating the recipe for “Borrego” pechuga mezcal.

A batch distilled in May 2021 yielded 402 bottles released under the Mal Bien label.

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.

Nose has a little mineral and earth

Taste has some funk, slight creaminess, and some sweetness on the back end.

Loving everything I’ve tried from the Sonido family so far. This is my favorite of the papalotes from Mal Bien that haven’t been rested in glass. This is chocolaty, creamy and a bit nutty. Pretty good value too. Don’t feel like I can get sick of this.
