Mezcal tepeztate

Tepeztate mezcal is made from a type of wild agave known by its common name “tepeztate” (or marmot agave), which is characterized by its slow growth, taking between 18 to 23 years to mature. This agave is distinguished by its large size, reaching a weight of 300 to 400 kilos.

Characteristics of tepeztate mezcal

The production of tepeztate mezcal is complex and challenging due to the particular characteristics of the agave, which include a low sugar content and the difficulty of harvesting and transporting it, as these agaves grow in mountainous areas that are difficult to access.

The flavor of tepeztate mezcal is distinctive, tending to be drier or slightly smoky, with notes that evoke vegetation and ripe fruit. Its artisanal production process and the relative scarcity of wild agave contribute to mezcal tepeztate being especially prized and often commanding a higher price.

What does tepeztate mean?

The Tepeztate maguey, belonging to the Agave Marmorata species, owes its name to the Nahuatl term “Tepetl”, which translates as mountain or hill. This name clearly alludes to its natural habitat, as the Tepeztate usually thrives on steep mountain slopes and cliffs, demonstrating its remarkable adaptation to challenging and elevated terrain.
