Del Maguey Wild Papalome Mezcal

The Papalome agave gets its name from the indigenous Nahuatl for the butterfly (papalot) and looks like a giant Tobalá.

This variety of agave grows abundantly in the remote and tropical Mixteca Alta region.

There, the maestro palenquero Fernando Caballero Cruz distils it in the traditional style of the village of San Pedro Teozacoalco: in a stainless steel pot with a clay condenser and bamboo tubing.
