The agave is cooked in a conical earthen pit, milled using a traditional stone tahona, and fermented in open-air wooden vats before being distilled twice using traditional wood-fired copper pot stills. Romulo’s Mexicano (Agave rhodacantha) doubles down on the earthy and passionate side of his spirits, with bold aromatics of fresh rawhide, tobacco leaf, damp garden soil and bell peppers dominating the nose.
