The Majestic Wild: Fuego Y Humo Tepeztate Joven

The Essence of Oaxaca: Fuego Y Humo's Mezcal Artesanal Tepeztate Joven 750ml captures the untamed spirit of Oaxaca's wild tepeztate, a magnificent agave that matures over 20-30 years in the rugged terrains of San Dionisio Ocotepec. This artisanal mezcal embodies the rich heritage of mezcal craftsmanship, presenting a unique blend of sweet herbal notes with the green, fresh, and earthy aromatics characteristic of the Agave marmorata. Each bottle is a homage to the land, a tribute to the ancient practices that continue to define the art of mezcal making.

A Symphony of Flavors: Experience a taste revelation with pops of spearmint, jalapeño, green peppers, vanilla ice cream, and cucumber that dance on your palate. This mezcal's distinctive profile is sweeter and more rounded, setting it apart in a blind tasting with its signature lactic and creamy taste. Crafted with dedication and rested for over a year before bottling, Fuego Y Humo's Tepeztate Joven is a masterpiece of balance, offering an unforgettable sweet, herbal, and vegetal flavor profile.

Adventures in Harvesting: Behind every bottle of Fuego Y Humo's Tepeztate Joven lies a story of adventure and respect for nature. Harvesting the wild tepeztate, a process filled with challenges and reverence involves braving the depths of Oaxaca's backcountry. José's tales from the palenque shed light on the dedication required to bring this extraordinary agave from its perilous natural habitat to the bottle. The ritual of toasting with mezcal and seeking permission from Mother Earth before the harvest underscores the deep connection between the land and this exquisite spirit.

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.
