Agave Castilla is one of the largest species of Agave in existence, sometimes growing as tall as two and a half meters. This Agave has been cultivated in the Southern parts of Mezquital Municipality, mainly from the autonomous indigenous community. The Agave used for Lagrimas De Dolores Castilla comes from the village of Huazamota. It takes around 6 years to reach maturity and can be found the valleys of Durango thriving amongst the shade of mountains and cliffs. Although it comes from the same family as Oaxaca’s Espadín, this agave differs greatly in appearance, size and taste.
