More than 100 hectares in Oaxaca of sustainable crops of agaves like espadín and tobalá.
We only harvest the biggest, richest, best chosen agaves. We harvest agaves from 8 to 13 years old by hand.
Selected hearts or piñas are cut up and cooked with mezquite and ocote wood for 2 days. Our oven is specially designed with a sub-chamber below the main pit. This structure uses less wood tan a traditional roasting pit which results in less smoky and more evenly cooked piñas.
The grinding process with the traditional tahona to extract the juices.
The juices are collected in wooden tanks and fermented for 4 days.
