Gusto Historico Ignacio Juárez Tepextate 750ML: A Journey of Flavors

The Essence of Agave marmorata: Crafting Excellence 

Step into the world of Gusto Historico Tepextate, a premium agave spirit meticulously crafted by maestro mezcalero Ignacio Juárez in Miahuatlan, Oaxaca. This exceptional mezcal celebrates Agave marmorata, which is known for its outstanding qualities. Each bottle captures the spirit's unique essence, derived from carefully selected agaves, harvested at the peak of ripeness, and cooked in a traditional underground pit oven. This process imparts smoky and earthy notes to the mezcal, creating a rich and immersive tasting experience.

A Distillation of Tradition and Flavor 

Experience the traditional art of mezcal making with the Gusto Historico Tepextate. Double distillation in a copper alambique is still essential in preserving the purest form of agave flavor. The meticulous milling of the cooked agaves with a tahona ensures full extraction of the rich and intricate flavors. This careful process results in a complex and elegant mezcal, offering a true taste of Oaxacan craftsmanship.

A Symphony of Aromas and Tastes: Tasting Notes 

Indulge in the sensory pleasure of the Gusto Historico Tepextate. The nose greets you with fresh grassiness, evoking an overgrown, freshly mowed lawn. On the palate, the initial sweetness is reminiscent of melting sugar crystals, seamlessly transitioning to the distinct flavors of grilled and charred poblano peppers. This smokiness is complemented by a unique aftershave gel note and the depth of campfire ash, creating a mezcal of unparalleled complexity and character.

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.
