It is crafted with local organic methods from 100% Agave angustifolia at a family-run distillery in San Baltazar Chichicapam.

"The nose is bright and floral with a bit of smoke, hints of citrus and tropical fruit. The palate is smooth on entry, with agave notes upfront that give way to more fruit notes that include banana, apple and orange peel. The lingering finish continues with more agave, as well as a noticeable minerality, anise and subtle smoke."
