Destilado de Agave produced in Santa Catarina Minas, Oaxaca · Maestro Mezcalero Edgar Angeles Carreño · Distilled from 100% Arroqueño (Agave americana); Agave grown to maturity, then harvested using the capón method · Cooked in an earthen pit oven; hand milled using a maleta and canoa · Fermented with well water in pine tanks · Distilled twice using Filipino style still made of clay · Distilled June 2021; rested in glass 4 months · 70 liters produced · 51.4% ABV (ABV may vary batch to batch)

Rare and highly coveted, Arroqueno from Real Minero is a special gem. This tiny microbatch is particularly exciting: harvested capón (a method of forcing a higher concentration of sugars in the mature agave by cutting off the quiote stalk as it rises) and then milled entirely by hand, this bottle represents a passionate tribute by Edgar Angeles Carreño to both this beautiful, massive species of maguey, and to his family’s storied relationship to its distillation. Only 70 liters produced!
