5 Sentidos Papalometl Mezcal - 750 ML
This 305-liter batch of Papalometl was distilled by maestro mezcalero Amando Alvarado Alvarez in Santa Maria Ixcatlan, Oaxaca. Amando wild-harvested 380 mature agave Papalometl at approximately 6,000 feet above sea level. He cooked the harvested agave in an underground conical oven with encino oak for seven days. The cooked agave was then hand-mashed with wooden mallets before being allowed to ferment in rawhide fermenters for six days with spring water. The resulting tepache and mash were then double-distilled in small clay pots at Amados's palenque, "Ixcateco." March 2019.
Cinco Sentidos ("Five Senses") originated as the house agave spirit in Oaxaca's acclaimed restaurant, "El Destilado." Our goal is to bring you uncertified nano-batch agave spirits that highlight varied production processes, agave diversity, and most importantly, the tradition and talents of the "familias mezcaleras" who handcraft their spirit with rigor and esteem. Drink with respect.
