About this destilado de agave

Sin Gusano Tepextate is produced in the community of San Dionisio Ocotepec, Oaxaca by maestro mezcalero Manuel Mendez. The maguey Tepextate (agave Marmorata) in this mezcal can take up to 30 years to reach their full potential for maturity for use in mezcal production.

Sin Gusano Project

The Sin Gusano Project aims to inspire consumers to ethically explore the wonders of handmade agave spirits, which are traditionally known as Mezcal. The brand operates bars and events, and travels regularly through Mexico to source an evolving range of rare distillates. Many of these artisanal spirits haven’t been experienced outside of the communities in which they are made until now.

Sin Gusano launched the Mezcal Appreciation Society (M.A.S.) in spring 2020. M.A.S. is the UK’s only agave spirits subscription club, providing members with regular shipments of agave spirits and educational materials. Membership to the Mezcal Appreciation Society can be purchased here.

I love a good nose and this is a seriously distinctive, pungent nose.
Grass, herbs and sushimi on the nose; wild palate with black pepper finish.
Tried this against the Rey Campero Tep which I’m also a big fan of, but this one wins.
Nothing not to like here.
