About this destilado de agave
NETA Madrecuixe, Jabalín, Bicuixe from Miguel García Jarquín was predominately composed of Madrecuixe and Jabalín harvested from family land in a neighboring community. This field blend was made with a mix of wild magueyes that were cooked together, and co-fermented before distillation. The crafting of ensambles forms part of a long-standing regional practice that reveals the complex flavors of the local landscape. While Jabalín is a maguey common to the Miahuatlán landscape, it was never used in mezcal production until recent years.
Miguel García Jarquín is a young multi-generational mezcal producer and is also the son in law of the producers Hermogenes Vásquez and Paula Aquino Sánchez. After marrying their daughter Felicitas, he made this first batch on their palenque. The proceeds from selling this batch was to be used for the baptism of he and Felicitas’ newborn daughter. We we able to purchase half of this batch while the rest was sold locally to friends of the family. Not only is this a remarkable spirit, but we feel it important to promote field blends, or ensambles, as they represent the most traditional type of agave spirit and are inherently more sustainable in their production.
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.
