Neta Destilado de Agave - 2018 Bicuixe 70cl

Candido works with quiotudo agaves, meaning he cuts each plant’s quiote before it has a chance to flower. This concentrates the agave’s sugar in the piña rather than sending the energy towards reproduction but requires extra time for each plant to fully ripen. The extra time improves the yield of each piña and develops a richness of flavour.

Bicuixe piñas were quiotudo and left caponado for over one year before harvest.

From Meady: 'The nose is of spiced fruit with light smoke – smells great. Tropical fruits, clove, spice and white pepper on the palate. A long finish that is warming and delightful. Definitely, a lot going on in terms of flavour, but very well balanced and thoroughly enjoyable.'

Catagory: destilado de agave, batch June 2018, 200 litres

Aroma: fruity, floral with a whiff of smoke

Palate: deep, full flavours, pineapple, lemon, peach, honeysuckle, white pepper, light smoke and a generous finish

Maestro: Candido García Cruz

Interesting fact: NETA is a colloquial word in Mexico that translates to "the real deal" or "the truth". Since 2012, the brand has worked closely with several small, family producers and a cooperative of twelve palenqueros from the southern valleys and hills of Miahuatlán, Oaxaca. The region has preserved its reputation for producing some of the finest mezcales and agave spirits anywhere in Mexico. The team behind NETA presents a carefully curated selection of extraordinary spirits that would otherwise never be found outside of its place of origin.
