Details

The mezcal yielded by Tepeztate is often categorized as intensely vegetal, herbal, and earthy.  Agave Tepeztate is possibly the most interesting of all agaves, as well as one of the rarest. It takes a very long time to mature, sometimes up to 25-35 years, and prefers to grow on steep grades in rocky soil. Its leaves are broad and wavy and can often be found hanging horizontally from mountain cliffs. Tepeztate is truly a wild agave, however, due to the species' increasing rarity and potential for endangerment, El Jolgorio's producers are exploring the cultivation of Tepeztate seedlings in a nursery to be re-planted in the wild (i.e. semi-cultivated).
