The Topanito brand stands for high-quality authentic tequila as well as mezcal made from 100% agave - and shows that quality does not always have to be expensive. The addition "Mezcal Artesanal" identifies original Mexican and artisan mezcal, which is not produced industrially. For the most part, the easy-to-cultivate Espadín agave is used in Mezcal production; less attention is paid to the remote wild agaves, which often grow for decades and develop extraordinary aromas. Topanito therefore offers with the wild agaves Madre Cuishe, Tobalá and Tepeztate a series of a special kind. The wild agaves are harvested by hand and roasted in earth pits filled with charcoal for five to eight days. The cooked piñas are then traditionally ground with a stone mill and double distilled in copper kettles five days later. Tepeztate agave can be harvested after 30 to 55 years of maturation. This agave species can be found on steep slopes and stony cliffs, as well as near wild herbs. By the way, the name Topanito is derived from "Topan", the seat of the gods, of the Mexican natives. "Tequila" means something like "gift of the gods". Tasting notes:Color: Clear. Nose: Fruity, notes of green mangoes, chili, cucumbers, kiwis, passion fruit.
