"Produced by Nicolas García Gutiérrez, this very special PM Pick was distilled twice – once with a refrescadera, once without. What makes this batch so unique is that before Nicolas was able to unearth the oven, the region was hit by a long stretch of rain, forcing him to leave the agave buried until things dried up. After 20 days the oven was unearthed, revealing that a type of fungus called moho – essentially mildew – had grown on the agaves. This contributed to the flavor profile in a way that only a natural, spontaneous process can.
Cinco Sentidos ("five senses") started as the house mezcal line at Oaxaca's acclaimed restaurant and mezcaleria El Destilado. These uncertified agave spirits highlight diverse, traditional production methods employed by small batch producers who distill a variety of agave species. The range embodies the customs, traditions, and history behind the spirits and the people who make them."
