This new expression is made from 100% Agave Papalote, also known as Agave cupreata, and specific to the Guerrero region. The plant grows wild in the mountain range of Guerrero, which is on the coast and has a tropical climate.
Agaves cook over the course of three-fo-four days in a pit oven using volcanic rock and firewood from the Guamuchil tree, the company says: an endemic species to Mexico and South America. Distillation occurs using firewood and a copper alembic still.
The result is a palate and aroma that go from grapefruit skin and fresh wood to rosemary and peanut oil, with hints of butter and daisy flowers, the company reports.
The decanter’s green color represents jade, a precious stone of value to Mexico’s ancestral cultures. The design was inspired by the Guerrero woman, the company says, “her tender nature, strength, leadership, and warrior spirit.” Finally, the four-petal flowers that cover the decanter represent the Fifth Sun, a pre-Hispanic god representing the origin of the universe.
The cap is handcrafted using the Olinalá lacquer technique, which has denomination of origin in Guerrero. It represents the vessel that ancient women carried, known as a jicara. The decoration features a hummingbird, reflecting its connection to this Mexican region, as pre-Hispanic communities considered this bird a messenger from the gods, the company says.
