Mezcal Vago Mexicano



In order to craft Mezcal Vago Mexicano, Aquilino harvests mature Mexicano agave, which grow naturally in the village of Candelaria Yegolé. Aquilino finds the agave by hiking through the mountains of the Sierra Sur and identifying the agave growing in the valleys and forests of the region. Once he harvests the wild agave, he hand-selects each piña used to create Mezcal Vago Mexicano based on its maturity and flavor profile. The piñas from the Mexicano agave are mixed with the piñas from the Espadin agave, and are then roasted together. Much like Mezcal Vago Elote, Mezcal Vago Mexicano is made by fermenting the juices of the piñas using natural yeast and distilling them twice through Aquilino's 200-liter copper-pot still. 


Mezcal Vago Mexicano has an aroma of peaches and cinnamon, that lead to hints of tang, toasted vanilla and caramel. Each batch of Mezcal Vago Mexicano yields as few as 150 bottles, and Aquilino produces only three to four batches each year.
