About this destilado de agave

NETA Madrecuixe was distilled by Grupo Logoche in October 2016. Grupo Logoche is a cooperative founded and run by the palenqueros and maguey growers of Barrio Logoche in Lachigüizo; their mezcalero community is located outside of Miahuatlán de Porfirio Díaz in the Sierra Sur region of Oaxaca. They harvest under the full moon and slow-roast the piñas for 4-5 days with mezquite and other local acacia woods. After the agave is unearthed, they let it rest for around a week, allowing the early stages of dry fermentation to begin. When the maguey is ready, they chop it with machetes and run it through a mechanical mill. Depending on the type of agave and the temperature, the shredded fibers rest for one or two days in their seven sabino wood fermentation tanks, which each hold 800-1200 liters. Once the dry-fermented fibers have reached a certain temperature, the mezcaleros add filtered well water to the tanks to continue the fermentation.

NETA

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.

Maestro Cándido Garcia Cruz. Lot MDXCAN1505. Bottle 012/240. 50.5% ABV.

This bottle was wound so tight upon first opening that I had to toss it in the back of my cabinet for several months. A little oxidation worked wonders, though. It’s a completely different spirit now.

Nose: Yellow Starbursts, sour pie cherries, cheese danish, a florist’s shop during Easter (tulips, carnations), confectioner’s sugar, and a wisp of peanut shell.

Palate: The first sip is like striking match against my tastebuds. It’s searingly hot at first but quickly mellows as a gentle and unique flavor profile unfolds. New car smell, macadamia nuts, juicy red bell pepper, mace, oak, lanolin, and celery salt. The finish lingers on forever and tastes like a cold spring house: musky air and damp limestone.

Overall, it’s lovely, soft, and delicate. But, damn, it needs some oxidation!

This mezcal is just perfect. So smooth, so silky, and so pure and clean. Made by real humans who care more about excellent handcrafted mezcal than government-designated identification. We see you NETA! Keep doing what you do.
