About this destilado de agave
NETA Tepextate from mezcalero Gilberto Aquino Garcia was produced in Logoche, Miahuatlán. After harvesting, the agaves rest for three days before being cooked for 12 days in an underground conical oven. The cooked maguey is rested for four days before being milled with machetes and a shredder. The milled plants dry ferment for 48 hours before water is added and natural fermentation continues. Finally, it is double distilled in copper stills. The spirit is composed of heads, hearts, and tails.
For the May 2021 batch, he obtained 30 piñas of guía and capón Tepextate through his wife ́s family outside of the village of El Palmar, located to the northeast of Logoche. The May 2021 batch was selected by Astor Wines & Spirits for an exclusive release of 162 bottles.
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.
