  • WHY: This incredible and truly special batch of Madrecuixe was distilled in 2015 by Cándido García Cruz and yielded only 240 bottles. The ripe Madrecuixe used in this batch came from a grower, or magueyero, from the neighboring village of Tecolote. These specific lands are made up of a white-colored earth that bleed into what Cándido calls cascajo amarillo, describing a yellowish and very rocky limestone-rich soil. The result is a terroir-driven spirit that rivals any mezcal in the store in terms of its elegance and its complexity.
  • HOW: The freshly harvested agave was left to rest in the sun for eight days before being roasted with mesquite wood for eight days in the family’s conical earthen oven. Once unearthed, the maestro deemed the cooked maguey ready for processing four days later. With help from his daughter, Florencia, the maguey was macerated by machete and passed through a shredder.
  • WHAT: NETA is an independent bottler that works closely with several small, family producers and a cooperative of twelve palenqueros from the southern valleys and hills of Miahuatlán, Oaxaca. Situated at the southern tip of the Central Valleys and the foot of the Sierra Madre del Sur mountains, the area is renowned for the strong character of its people, its diverse landscapes, and the rich agricultural and culinary traditions that have been maintained throughout generations. No two productions of NETA can ever be exactly the same as environmental conditions, water, natural yeasts, and soil types all contribute to their nuances just as much as the touch of their maker.
