About this mezcal

Tres Tribus Ensamble is produced by fifth generation mezcalero Juan Antonio Coronel in San Francisco Nuxaño, Oaxaca. It is distilled from 8-year-old Espadín, Jabalí silvestre averaging between 10 and 15 years old, and Salmiana silvestre that can range from 15 years up to 35 years old. The agaves are harvested, cooked for up to a week in an underground conical oven using Encino Oak wood. Next, the cooked agave is mashed by hand with wooden mallets and then loaded into underground amphoras to ferment for up to a week. Even in colder weather, the mashed agave and pristine mountain water from a nearby volcano aquifer ferment in the cement containers with the help of ambient yeast. Finally he double distills in copper.

The label features, Cuacuahue, the bull, a form taken by the shapeshifting witch that haunts the night. Brand tasting notes: jasmine, mango and honey with minerality. Mid-palate of cooked agave with a toasty elegance. Hints of stone fruit with a long finish of citrus and earthy flavors.

Tres Tribus

Named for the three tribes that first settled the region, Tres Tribus is a small batch artesanal mezcal hand-crafted by fifth generation mezcalero Juan Antonio Coronel in the remote mountains of Oaxaca. These time-honored traditional techniques bring forth pure, rich and complex profiles of the wild agave foraged from the region’s lush, pine-covered forests.

Altos Planos co-founder Juan Coronado first tasted Coronel’s Espadín Capon during a trip to Oaxaca in the mid-90s. After the success of Mijenta Tequila, Coronado wanted to share traditionally produced mezcal with those passionate about agave spirits, and Tres Tribus was born.

The brand is the first and only (as of June 2024) Certified B Corporation. Tres Tribus is fully carbon neutral and committed to acting in an environmentally responsible manner.
