About this destilado de agave
Mal Bien Sierra Negra is made with the rare maguey Sierra Negra (Agave Americana). This tiny batch only yielded 48 liters and from that tiny quantity only 24 bottles made their way to the US as a K&L exclusive. The agaves were cultivated on the family’s land below the house and roasted for six days in the Ramos’ underground ovens over encino, palo de aguila, yegareche, and mesquite wood. The cooked agave was rested for another week before being crushed by horse drawn tahona. The agave was then fermented for 8 days in sabino wood tanks and adjusted only with puntas and colas.
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.
