COMUNIDAD NO. 3 – RANCHO VIEJO
A small 197-liter batch of wild Mexicano (agave rhodacantha), distilled in a small pueblo south of Sola de Vega. Self taught Distiller Gabino Ramirez, rents a small still in the village and ferments in small cylindrical vats; the separated fermentations add complexity. The mezcal is a single distillation to proof, using a refrescadera mounted atop the still, which increases the rectification of the distillate. Soft and richly vegetal. The batch was distilled June, 2021. 263 bottles.
