ZINACANTAN PAPALOMETL 2022 | 200ml

Fabiola Torres Monfil distills Papalometl (Agave potatorum) generally in the months of March to the first week of May. She always works hand in hand with her brother Silvestre Torres Monfil and her nephew Noe Torres who has been her apprentice for 9 years.

In the municipality of San Diego la Mesa, Papalometl is considered the most iconic agave for distillation in this part of the Mixteca of Puebla. Named after a word from the Nahuatl language that translates butterfly due to the beautiful arrangement of its leaves. The Agave potatorum is endemic to Mexico and is distributed in a small region between Puebla and Oaxaca of only 15,000 km 2, the high pressure exerted on it by the distillate market has led to a rapid decline in its population.

This expression of Papalometl plants (Agave potatorum - wild) are selected in the mountains with great precision. Only agave called fine or mature is used, which is 12 years old and shows signs of being just in time before producing its quiote.

This second batch of Papalometl distilled in the month of May 2022 was fired in a 4-ton conical brick oven, then rested for two days and was crushed in an electric mill. Its fermentation in pine wood vats for 25 days only with wild yeasts. It was obtained in a single distillation, using a copper still. The final result is an exquisite distillate of 48% ABV.
