Organically and sustainably certified our original and most elaborate variety of Mezcal Machetazo is from the mountains of Mochitlan, Guerrero. This agave is found on the mountain slopes of the Rio Balsas basin and the high elevation where this agave grows is ideal for the absorption of minerals giving way to a sweeter flavour unique to the Wild Cupreata Agave. The Wild Cupreata Agaves must reach a level of maturity of approximately 7 Years to ensure the ideal concentration of natural sugars and minerals in the heart of the agave or piña.
How It Is Made
The age of maturity for Cupreata Agave varies but generally occurs at any time from 7-15 years to ensure the ideal concentration of natural sugars and minerals in the heart of the agave or piña. It is roasted underground for 3 days, crushed by tahona, fermented in open-air tanks with natural yeasts for another 5 days and double distilled to create an amazing expression for what Machetazo is known for, producing unrivalled Cupreata. We are honoured to exclusively import and share this brand with Australia.
