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 flavor.
Aroma: citrus, fruit punch, vanilla
Palate: complex interesting espadín, pineapple, mango, whiff of smoke, creamy light finish

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.
