About this destilado de agave

This special batch of NETA Tepextate was made with 100% pure capon maguey Tepextate harvested from mezcalero Heriberto’s lands. This Tepextate distillate from June 2019 is a wonderful example of Heriberto’s work, and reflective of the lands and plants from which it is derived. The uncooked piñas were rested for five days and then pit roasted with mesquite wood for eight days. Partially due to its extremely low sugar content, Tepextate is never given much time to rest after it has cooled. After 48 hours, Heriberto macerated the well-cooked maguey with a machete and shredder before moving the approximately 600kg of fibers into a single sabino wood fermentation vat. 24 hours later, well water was added and the wet fermentation ran its course for six days. Twice distilled in a copper pot still over carefully monitored heat, Heriberto made three cuts in his resaque, splitting the liquid into different containers. Waiting for the right aromas and abundant presence of bubbly perlas, Heriberto composed this 60-liter batch with a precise mix of the heads, hearts, and tails.

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.

Solid tepe, had this as a sample bottle. I get a salty sea breeze and minerality on the nose. Has a nice complexity between green veggies and mangos

Very fresh and bright on the nose. Green peppers, tropical fruit, mild leather, pine and a pleasant lingering heat. Not mind blowing but definitely solid and extremely drinkable.

Lot TPXHBG1906. Very green, raw, and vernal nose…… Aromas of raw potatoes, celery, and raw collard greens…… The palate is perfumed and coats the tongue……. Flavors are a 90 degree turn from the nose…. The palate has notes of dryer sheets, new cotton, and Febreze……… This is good but I would not want a bottle given the price……. I’d be disappointed had I purchased this…. There are much less expensive Teps on the market that I enjoyed much more than this.
