Yuu Baal Tepeztate is made with wild agave Tepeztate that can take up to 35 years to mature. Due to the length of time needed for this agave to grow, its very existence in the near future is very fragile. This mezcal has sweet herbal notes of wild plants and cooked flowers. It’s not as spicy as other Tepeztate mezcals, but it is still a very unique experience. This mezcal is made by Isaias Martinez Juan in San Juan del Rio.
Yuu Baal | Tepeztate
Mezcal is something Mexico still crafts with absolute passion and is generally produced in much smaller quantities. Since true artisanal Mezcal is hand crafted as described and unlike other industrialized spirits which place emphasis predominantly on high yields compromising quality by utilizing means and methods which have no soul or spirit; stripping away the very essence of what defines Mexico.
Yuu Baal Tepeztate has sweet herbal notes of wild plants and cooked flowers. It’s made with wild agave Tepeztate that can take up to 35 years to mature. Dry herbal flavors with hot spice, cara cara orange, and elusive floral notes far-off in the background. There’s smoke at the finish, and moderate agave sweetness remains on the palate long afterward.
