Don Guadalupe Pérez honours this antique tradition in his home town of Tzitzio, Michoacán, carefully crafting this delicious mezcal, and aged during 9 months in a glass demijohns, three feet under earth, which accentuates its sweet and aged flavours. The Agave Americana Sahuayensis grows in western Michoacán, close to Jiquilpan and Sahuayo. It is a large agave, sometimes measures up to 2 metres in height and 40-100 kilos. Water is fresh local stream water, agave is cooked in a conical lava rock pit for 4 days, fermented in ground level wooden oak tanks with all natural airborne yeasts and then distilled in a copper alembic still with pine wood hat.
