Tuxca artesanal

Tuxca is an artesanal spirit distilled from a blend of wild agave growing throughout southern Jalisco & Northern Colima, born on the fringes of one of the continent’s most active volcanos.

The wild Lineño & Cimarron agaves are fermented in centuries old craters, carved on rocky volcanic floors and brought to life using copper stills encased in Parota tree trunks.

destilado artesanal

This artesanal agave spirit hails from the small town of Santa María Ixcatlán. The tools and methods unique to this special place in Oaxaca have been passed from father to son for generations.

The rare Papalomé agave grows wild in the mountains of Ixcatlán and is uniquely fermented in bull hides and distilled in small clay pots.
