About the wine

Pulque is a traditional Mexican spirit made from fermented agave sap. Juerte, based in the village of Tlaxcala east of Mexico City, make this incredibly unique, vibrant, and distinctly tart take on the beverage.

From the importer: "Gerónimo Rosainz, JUERTE’s master distiller, heard about destilados de pulque from his grandmother. She had told him stories about a French man who made pulque at his hacienda in their town. During the revolution, the French man, like most foreigners, fled Mexico back to his native country, leaving behind his still. The locals were able to gain access to the abandoned hacienda and thus understand the process behind destilado de pulque production. However, as this coincided with the downfall in pulque demand, no one took any initiative to continue its production. Then, in the mid-1990s, Mr. Rosainz married a chemical engineer and told his new wife about the story his grandmother had told him. His wife helped him procure the necessary equipment and together, they decided to reinitiate this centuries-old tradition and began selling their pulque in their village in northeastern Tlaxcala."
