About this destilado de agave

Sin Gusano Tobala from Sola de Vega, Oaxaca is produced by Gilberto Vásquez. While Gilberto has a refrescador still at his palenque, which is uncommon in this region, this Tobala was double-distilled in a small clay pot still. Gilberto also adds pieces of cooked, unfermented agave to the boiling chamber of the still ahead of the second distillation, which is not a common practice for this region.

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.

Really tasty. Almost a ‘crema de Tobala’ with cooked, unfermented agave added to the boiling chamber before the 2nd distillation.
The palate is smooth, creamy, sweet with an earthiness from the clay.
