About this destilado de agave
NETA Madrecuixe, Espadín, and Jabalín from Primitivo Vasquez was made with both Espadín and Jabalín that were harvested just five days before being roasted, and Madrecuixe that rested in the sun for 27 days before cooking. Extended resting periods for Agave karwinskii can allow for a better breakdown of long cellulose chains that permit a more efficient conversion and extraction of sugars. The end result is a larger yield. Madrecuixe and Espadín were included in this blend in order to tamper the foamy saponins of Jabalín that can complicate the fermentation and distillation processes.
NETA is a colloquial word in Mexico that translates to “the real deal” or “the truth”. Since 2012, the brand has worked closely with several small, family producers and a cooperative of twelve palenqueros from the southern valleys and hills of Miahuatlán, Oaxaca. The region has preserved its reputation for producing some of the finest mezcales and agave spirits anywhere in Mexico. The team behind NETA presents a carefully curated selection of extraordinary spirits that would otherwise never be found outside of its place of origin.
A note about NETA labels: The total bottle count written on the front label might be less than the total batch size. Batches may be split between Mexico, Europe, and the US; the handwritten bottle count represents the number of bottles imported into a particular country.
