About this destilado de agave
Sin Gusano Tobaziche from Santa Catarina Minas, Oaxaca is produced by legendary maestro mezcalero Felix Angeles. Felix cooks his agave in a traditional mezcal horno (an earthen pit). He then crushes the cooked agave with a heavy wooden mallet. The cooked, crushed agave fibres are then fermented in open-air in large slatted wooden tinas. Finally, the fermented mash is twice distilled in the small clay pots.
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.
