How It Is Made
The Maguey Pichumel is pit cooked, crushed by tahona stone, fermented in oak wooden vats and distilled in copper alembic stills. Maguey Pichumel (A. Marmorata) is an agave narrowly distributed in Mexico, that grows in difficult soils and produces awesome minerality, dry and balanced mezcals. It yields 1L of mezcal per 25 kgs of Agave and reaches peak maturity over a 12 to 20 year life cycle. We are honoured to exclusively import and share this brand with Australia.
