About this mezcal
NETA Penca Larga, Madrecuixe, Mexicano Verde from Primitivo Vasquez is a unique ensamble which includes both Agave and Furcraea, a genus of succulent plants belonging to the family Asparagaceae. Primitivo produced this April 2021 batch with equal parts Madrecuixe (A. karwinskii var.) and Mexicano Verde (A. rhodacantha var.), which helped control some of the saponins from the Penca Larga. This allowed for a more manageable fermentation and distillation. Elvia, Primitivo’s wife, helped out with the distilling. Adjusting a mix of hearts, hearts, and tails, Primitivo crafted a total of 60 liters of this ensamble. 72 bottles went exclusively to Astor Wines and Spirits in New York City.
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.
