Product Description

Burrito Fiestero Ancestral Tepemete is born from the Ancestral way of distillation in the hometown of Durango, Mexico. Found in the lower valleys of El Mezquital and throughout the west of Durango. It is wild and very scarce, this small maguey has long but very narrow green leaves. Ancestral distillation consists of using very small and difficult-to-handle clay pots that hold the fermented mash as it simmers. These clay pots impart a soft and tannic texture with a distinctive earthen mouthfeel to the Mezcal.

The upper chamber is a Filipino wooden still, adding soft wooden notes to the complex liquid. Once the alcohol vapour condenses, the drops land on a handmade timber paddle and run through a bamboo pipe into the collector. Distilled a second time to leave only the best profile Mezcal.


Smells Like

Red apple, Pear, Vanilla and fresh soil.

Tastes Like

Sweet cinnamon, flowers and fresh cut wood followed by a minty green candy note and a long smokey sweet lactic aftertaste.

How It's Made

Harvested by hand with the use of an axe, 8 – 10 year agaves are handpicked when the maximum sugar content is achieved. The agave piñas are cooked underground for 72 hours in our volcanic rock pit oven. Once cooked they are removed from the pit and further milled by hand in an ancestral way. Using mountain spring water the fermentation is done in tiny 300-litre wooden vats.

Open-air fermentation lasts for 3- 5 days and is activated with wild airborne yeast. Double-distilled with the use of bagasse (spent agave fibres) in small clay and wooden Filipino style stills. The runoff is then filtered and bottled at still strength. Whilst the Mezcal is being made, the bottles are meticulously hand-painted and labelled by the locally employed artisans. This Tepemete Mezcal is rare and extremely limited, each bottle is uniquely hand-painted and a collector’s item.

  1. agavelover

    The Tepemete is a wildly impressive expression. It’s wildly smooth and maintains it’s unique blend of flavours without being too explosive or harsh on the palette.

    Sure it’s a little more expensive than other options but if your looking for something premium that you can comfortably sip you can’t go past this one!

  2. Spirit guide

    Beautiful mezcal, wildly different from the burrito fiestero ancestral durango, while that has overipe tropical fruit, this is the opposite, all dark fruit, blueberry, blackberry, cherry, plum and a childhood favourite hubba bubba grape bubblegum, very long finish, extremely complex. Well worth the extra investment, I could spend a long time with a drink like this.
