From the iconic Angeles family palenque in Santa Catarina Minas, this ensamble marries two rare varieties of agave: Largo (Agave Karwinskii) and Tobala (Agave Potatorum), in a batch made in the “ancestral” method. This means no mechanical devices were employed in its production: these precious agave were cooked in the family’s earthen oven, then painstakingly milled by hand, fermented, and finally distilled using pot stills made from local clay.  As the family begins to bless us with more batches of ancestral spirits—some of the most labor-intensive spirits in the world—this blend in particular is a treat to be coveted.

Description

Since 1898, the mining village of Santa Caterina Minas has been distilling some of the most rustic, traditional and exquisitely expressive mezcales in all of Mexico.  Today, the Ángeles Real Minero is the brand of the Ángeles family from Santa Catarina Minas. Fourth and Fifth generation Mezcal-producers, Eduardo works the distillery, while mother Doña Florentina handles the bottling and sister Graciela handles… well, everything from marketing to development and research.  Sadly, the patriarch of the Family, Don Lorenzo, passed away in 2016, but the family is carrying the torch and continuing their century-old tradition of producing quality mezcal.  The Ángeles family are thought-leaders in the industry and have devoted their lives to producing this hand-crafted spirit using arguably the most traditional methods in Oaxaca. Magueys are cooked in conical earthen ovens, fermented in wooden vats, hand-milled with mortar and pestle, and distilled in earthenware pots — a tremendously laborious technique, which yields an impressive, idiosyncratic spirit. Mineral-driven, with rich texture and a uniquely aromatic nose which speaks deeply of terroir, these mezcales will linger in mind and palate with consistently epic finishes. Often there are only 100 or 200 liters of each batch produced.
