Collection: Antilope

Antilope Tobalá Artesanal Mezcal is a premium and artisanal expression of mezcal, a traditional Mexican spirit crafted from agave plants. This mezcal is distinguished by its use of Tobalá agave, a wild and rare variety known for its unique flavor profile and complexity.<br><br>The production of Antilope Tobalá Artesanal Mezcal follows traditional methods that have been passed down through generations in Oaxaca, Mexico, where mezcal has been produced for centuries. The Tobalá agave plants, which typically take longer to mature and are smaller in size compared to other agave varieties, are carefully harvested from the wild in remote mountainous regions.<br><br>After harvesting, the hearts of the Tobalá agave plants, known as piñas, are roasted in underground pits or ovens to release their sugars and develop their characteristic smoky flavors. Once roasted, the piñas are crushed and the extracted juices, known as aguamiel, are collected and fermented in open-air vats using naturally occurring wild yeasts.<br><br>The fermented aguamiel is then distilled in small copper alembic stills, where it undergoes multiple distillations to purify and concentrate the flavors. The resulting mezcal is complex and aromatic, with distinctive notes of roasted agave, earthy minerals, and hints of tropical fruits.<br><br>Antilope Tobalá Artesanal Mezcal is typically enjoyed neat or as the base for craft cocktails, allowing its unique flavors to shine through and delight the palate. With its rich history, traditional craftsmanship, and distinctive flavor profile, Antilope Tobalá Artesanal Mezcal represents the artistry and heritage of mezcal production in Mexico. Cheers to the spirit of exploration and discovery in every sip!<br>
