About this destilado de agave
Pal’alma Guerrero – Cupreata Capon is made with Agave cupreata that took between 8-15 years to reach maturity. Once the reproductive stalk (“quiote”) began to grow, it was cut (“capón”) to redirect and concentrate sugars in the plant’s heart for a further 3 years. The resulting spirit is rich and expressive.
Pal’alma (or Mezcalito Pal’alma) is curated by Erick Rodriguez. Erick also bottles under the brand Almamezcalera. Known by many as the Indiana Jones of Mezcal, Erick Rodriguez works with agave spirits producers from the 20+ states of Mexico. Anywhere he finds agave fields and a freshwater stream, there’s a good chance that someone is making mezcal nearby. He has a private tasting room in Mexico City, which we visited in 2017, and wrote about in our post Almamezcalera & Mezcalito Pal’alma.
