You are not looking for mezcal, mezcal finds you and Berta Vasquez is the living example of this, always surrounded by mezcal teachers, she had the best school in San Baltazar Chichicapam and by chance, life gave her the opportunity to become a great teacher. World-class mezcal and gives us the opportunity to learn about its history through its artisanal mezcal Coyote.

This Coyote is from Mitla, Oaxaca and is one of the 4 new varieties recently studied, whose scientific name is Agave Iyobaa whose organoleptic characteristics may be different from the better known Coyote (A. americana). This is a new expression that we invite you to enjoy with just 30 bottles of this batch produced in 2020. 

Common names and uses: in Oaxaca it is known as shtob bnijh (Zapotec), maguey del duende and maguey coyote. The plants are used in the production of mezcal, especially in the districts of Tlacolula and Ocotlán.

Etymology: the specific epithet honors the pre-Hispanic city of Mitla, whose name in Zapotec is Lyobaa, which means "place of graves" or "place of rest", in whose gardens the duende maguey is currently planted, coming from the mountains in the vicinity of the archaeological site.
