About this destilado de agave
NETA Tepextate from Florencio García Vásquez is produced sparingly given the limited amounts to Tepextate in the Miahuatlan region of Oaxaca. According to NETA for Batch TPXFLR1911:
To craft these 50 liters of pure Tepextate, Florencio, harvested a total of 16 quiotudo and en guía ripe, wild-growing Tepextate plants from the steep slopes of his rocky and red-earth cascajudo lands in October 2019. Unlike other agaves, the Tepextate needs to be processed fairly quickly after it is cooked, and in this case, begun 24 hours after being unearthed from the mesquite wood-fired oven. Florencio dry fermented approximately 630kg for two days before adding a nearly equal portion of water from a riverside well. Quickly fermenting for another four days, the distillation of the guarape was finished on November 2, Dia de Muertos.
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.
