About this destilado de agave
NETA Tepextate was distilled by maestro mezcalero Hermógenes Vásquez in May 2018 and yielded 200 liters. Maguey Tepextate is a type of Agave marmorata that grows throughout many different regions of Oaxaca. This plant is one of the lowest-yielding varietals used in the production of mezcal. In Miahuatlán, maguey Tepextate is sometimes found at lower elevations and can be found growing alongside aromatic herbs and plants, such as verbena, copal trees, and wild chiles.
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.
