Unveil the rich tapestry of flavors in Cinco Sentidos Azul, a limited 500-liter batch meticulously crafted by master mezcalero Delfino Tobon Mejia in his native San Pablo, Ameyaltepec, Puebla. This exquisite offering is distilled from the Agave Tequilana Weber, commonly known as Azul, sourced from the village of Santo Tomas.

Harvested in a communal effort alongside friends and family, Delfino collected around seven tons of cultivated agave Azul. This precious yield was then slow-roasted underground for three days, fueled by indigenous tehuixtle firewood, infusing each fiber with a smoky, earthy aroma. Post-roasting, the agave was allowed to ferment naturally for ten days, enriching its flavors to a sublime complexity.

The final act of artistry occurs in Delfino's homemade, 3-plated copper still, where the mash and tepache are distilled just once to preserve the nuance and depth that only traditional craftsmanship can achieve. 

La Colección Mixteca showcases artisanal agave spirits meticulously crafted in the remote distilleries of the Mixteca highlands spanning Oaxaca and Puebla. Every bottle offers a unique take from the master mezcalero, employing regional agave and traditional techniques and styles often overlooked in today's distillation landscape. A generous percentage of the proceeds from this collection is allocated to enhance the palenques from which these spirits originate—2019 Series. 

Cinco Sentidos Azul is not just a drink; it’s a journey through generations of mezcalero wisdom, the richness of Puebla's soil, and the communal spirit of its harvest. Enjoy the authentic essence of agave, captured in each bottle for the true connoisseur.

Discover the soul of Puebla—experience Cinco Sentidos Azul today.

What is the difference between Tequila & Mezcal?

Tequila is a type of mezcal, much like how scotch and bourbon are types of whiskey.

Tequila and mezcal are both types of agave-based spirits that are popular in Mexico, but there are some key differences between the two. Tequila is made exclusively from the blue agave plant, which is primarily grown in the area surrounding the city of Tequila, about 40 miles northwest of Guadalajara. Mezcal, on the other hand, can be made from any type of agave plant, and is often made using traditional, labor-intensive methods.

One of the most noticeable differences between tequila and mezcal is their flavor. Tequila is typically smooth and subtle, with hints of fruit and spices, while mezcal has a more complex, smoky flavor that comes from the roasting of the agave hearts before they are fermented and distilled.

Another difference between the two spirits is their production process. Tequila is typically made using modern industrial methods, while mezcal is often produced using traditional techniques that have been passed down for generations. This can give mezcal a more authentic, artisanal character.

In general, tequila is considered to be a more refined and sophisticated spirit, while mezcal is often viewed as a more rustic and traditional drink. Both are popular in Mexico and are enjoyed around the world, so the best way to decide which one you like is to try them both and see which one suits your tastes.
