Copper color. Oaky aromas and flavors of freshly sawn wood, toasted malt, graphite, brown sugar, and raisins with a satiny, crisp, dryish light-to-medium body and an effortless, buoyant finish with notes of grilled corn and apple butter. An oak-centric Agave Spirit in a chewy style; cocktails await.

Agave Spirit

Agave spirit refers to a spirit made from one of the numerous varieties of agave plants outside the Mexican denominations of Tequila, Mezcal, Sotol, Bacanora and Raicilla. While most of the products are produced in Mexico from locally grown agave there are also examples made from agave grown in the southwestern United States and even the nation of Venezuela. Specific categories include Sikua from the Mexican state of Michoacan and Cocuy from Venezuela.

These sprits are usually clear, unless aged in oak, which gives them a golden color. Flavor profiles range from sweet potatoes and roasted pepper to herbs and smoky minerals; often there is a peppery finish. They are meant to be sipped as an aperitif, in cocktails, or served with spicy Mexican and Latin cuisine.
