Tio Pesca Mexicano is made with wild maguey Mexicano in the remote town of Sola de Vega, Oaxaca. The town of Sola de Vega is known for its clay pot distillation, and this clay-pot distilled mezcal is made by maestro mezcalero Fernando Mitra. The agave are cooked in an underground pit oven, crushed by hand with mallets, fermented in Sabina wood vats, and double distilled in clay.
Mexicano Agave is a wild plant that grows in pine-oak forests and dry forests from Sonora to Oaxaca. This Agaves strength is being able to store water during the dry season: its roots feed from the forest’s soil which fills its Mezcales with balsamic and floral hints without losing its solitary and peaceful essence.
Tío Pesca is a Santa Sabia Distillery project that brings an exclusive collection of ancestral palenques to the international market. They seek to preserve traditions and processing techniques that their ancestors have transmitted from generation to generation. Santa Sabia Distillery is also involved in Pescador de Suenos Mezcal, Aprendiz Mezcal, and Vecindad Tequila.
Sola de Vega sits 1,500 meters above sea level and is considered a semi tropical ecosystem with a lot of warm wet forests surrounding the region. All of the Tio Pesca Mezcales are classified as Ancestral, they are manually crushed, fermented in wooden sabino tubs and distilled in clay pots.
