About this destilado de agave
Mezcalosfera Coyote (Agave iyoba) is made by Margarito Cortés in Miahuatlan, Oaxaca. The maguey Coyote in this mezcal is cooked with mezquite and encino, milled by hand with mallets, and double distilled in a copper refrescadera still. Agave coyote most commonly refers to an Agave americana, but in this case, Coyote is referring to Agave iyoba. The first batch of this imported into the US in 2019 was just 52 liters; however, it wasn’t released until 2021 as an Old Town Tequila exclusive.
Mezcalosfera de Mezcaloteca
Mezcalosfera de Mezcaloteca is the exported bottling from Mezcaloteca, the famous bar in Oaxaca City that is renowned for their educational tastings. They source all of their agave spirits directly from producers in seldom-traveled parts of Oaxaca that are often hard to get to. They put an exceptional amount of information on their labels, and all of their releases are very small batches that exhibit the most unique characteristics of mezcal. Though only a few batches have been brought into the US, there are dozens upon dozens of different varieties available for sale at their tasting room in Oaxaca City. Most of their spirits are labeled “Aguardiente de Agave”, however all of their limited exports are certified “Mezcal”. These mezcals are imported into the United States by Heavy Metl Premium Imports, which also imports popular brands Mezcal Real Minero and Rey Campero Mezcal.
