Founded by one of the co-founders of the renowned Oaxacan mezcaleria Mezcaloteca, Gusto Histórico collaborates with exceptional producers like Victor Ramos, emphasizing preserving traditional production methods and practices.
Victor Ramos, a distinguished Agave Spirit producer based in Miahuatlán, Oaxaca, is renowned for his creations, often bottled under esteemed labels such as Mezcaloteca/Mezcalosfera and Mal Bien. His son, Emanuel Ramos, also contributes to producing outstanding agave spirits.
The Gusto Historico Victor Ramos Tobalá 750ML celebrates the distinctive qualities of Maguey tobala (Agave potatorum). Growing wildly at high altitudes and cultivated in some regions, Maguey tobala yields extremely limited quantities of intensely aromatic agave spirit. Its relatively small size and long growing period of 12-15 years make it increasingly rare in certain areas. Unlike most other agave varieties, Maguey tobala does not produce hijuelos, the shoots or pups that sprout around the main plant. Consequently, tobala can only grow from seed.
Towns like Santa Catarina Minas, Oaxaca, host two types of Maguey tobala: tobala chino, which grows in the sun, and tobala orejon, which grows in the shade. The disparity in sunlight exposure over the plants' maturation period accentuates the difference in character and taste between the two varieties.
Indulge in the Gusto Historico Victor Ramos Tobalá 750ML, an agave spirit that embodies the rare and distinctive qualities of Maguey tobala. Experience the craftsmanship, dedication, and unparalleled flavors that result from the traditional production methods passed down through generations in Miahuatlán, 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.
