Palenque Espadin Alberto Ortiz y Onofre

70 cl / 49°

Why it’s different

From the Palenque Project, this craft agave distillate made from Maguey Espadin comes from Bramaderos, Miahuatlán de Porfirio Díaz, Oaxaca, and is produced by Alberto and Onofre Ortiz, father and son and fourth and fifth generation palenqueros. Their excellent work is due to the use of personal recipes with a variety of agave blends: an ancient practice, determined by the availability of the plants in the chosen field.

Aromatic notes: Deep, almost acetonic chemical notes, with a spicy vegetal note, but with interesting and sweet fruity, exotic and sour tones, and banana.

Tasting notes: Delicate, lactic sweetness, with notes of hazelnut veering towards citrus and pineapple. Salty notes, which on the finish give way to a sweetness of ripe fruit and roasted corn.


The Palenque project is the brainchild of Luca Gargano, who involved six agave distillate producers from various villages in the state of Oaxaca and project coordinator Hector Vazquez. The Maestros Palenqueros aim to draw a detailed map of Oaxaca's terroir, the diversity of agave species and the natural conditions that give the agave a wealth of information during its long growing process. These producers operate with an artisanal approach, some introducing modern changes at various stages of production, always paying attention to the quality of the soil, the agave and the production process, based on their personal recipe.
