About this destilado de agave
Sin Gusano Tobaziche from San Agustín Amatengo, in the Ejuta district of Oaxaca, is produced by maestro mezcalero Sergio Juárez Patricio. Sergio cooks his agave in a traditional earthen pit, and once cooked, he crushes the agave using a tahona (stone wheel) that is pulled by two bulls. He then ferments the cooked agave in a wooden tina and distills in a copper refrescadera still.
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.

Agave with a hint of vanilla on the nose. Crisp and dry on the palate, vegetal notes, grass, light sweetness with a nutty element to it.
At 57% ABV it clearly packs a punch, but it’s not overly hot.
