Gusto Historico Ignacio Juárez Tepextate 750ML - Introducing the Gusto Historico Tepextate, a remarkable agave spirit crafted by maestro mezcalero Ignacio Juárez in the vibrant community of Miahuatlan, Oaxaca. This expression showcases the distinctive flavors of Agave marmorata, a varietal known for its exceptional qualities.

The production process begins with the careful selection of mature Agave marmorata plants, harvested at their peak of ripeness. These agaves are cooked in an underground pit oven, a traditional method that infuses the spirit with smoky and earthy undertones. After cooking, the agaves are milled using a tahona, a large stone wheel, to extract their juices and fibers, allowing for a full extraction of flavor.

Tasting Notes

  • Double distilled in a copper alambique still, this mezcal captures the essence of the agave in its purest form.
  • The nose opens with a burst of fresh grassiness, reminiscent of a freshly mowed lawn that has been overgrown.
  • The initial sweetness on the palate is akin to the delicate melting of sugar crystals on your tongue. This is followed by the distinct flavors of grilled and charred poblano peppers, adding a touch of smokiness and complexity to the spirit.
  • A subtle note of aftershave gel enhances the overall aromatic profile, while the presence of campfire ash adds depth and character.

The Gusto Historico Tepextate offers a rich and flavorful experience, with the Tepeztate agave shining through in all its glory. While indulging in this spirit, it's worth noting that its intensity may become pronounced after consuming a generous amount, making it a spirit to savor and appreciate in moderation.

Immerse yourself in the Gusto Historico Tepextate, an agave spirit that embodies the heritage, craftsmanship, and vibrant flavors of Miahuatlan, Oaxaca.

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.
