NETA Tequilana Capón 750ML
NETA Tequilana Capón 750ML - On a stretch of red earth between Logoche and Miahuatlán. Ramón and Wilfrido’s uncle, Eduardo, has grown naturally fertilized and immaculately cared for agave for decades. Until the shutdowns that came with the pandemic of 2020, nearly all of these agaves were contractually bound for Jalisco, where his Tequilana plants made their way into anonymous Tequila productions.
With this loss of business, their Tío Lalo began to offer this maguey to his nephews, who in turn have begun to use it in crafting their spirits. The flavors of the distilled spirit are quite interesting and can serve as a wonderful teaching tool. The base is entirely Logoche in its profile, but the strength of the Tequilana agave flavors shines through in beautiful form. As such, these Tequilana batches can help clarify the specific regional qualities of Logocheño terruño through the more familiar and identifiable flavors of the agave. This 415L batch was crafted by brothers Ramón and Wilfrido García Sánchez in April 2021 and was composed using a mix of heads, hearts, and high-proof tails.

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.
