Agave Arroqueno comes from the same species as the Coyote, the ‘Americana’ family of Agave. Arroqueno can take up to 20 years to mature, it is due to this that the Mezcal industry is concerned that this wild Agave will become more and more rare as Mezcal’s popularity continues to rise. Fortunately most Maestros Mezcaleros use it responsibly. A Mezcal that demands respect then enjoyed and should only be done in special occasions. Sola de Vega is sits 1,500 meters above sea level and is considered a semi tropical ecosystem with a lot of warm wet forests surrounding the region. All of the Tio Pesca Mezcales are classified as Ancestral, they are manually crushed, fermented in wooden sabino tubs and distilled in clay pots.
