Benito works with the community of San Agustín Amatengo in Oaxaca Mexico and with the mezcalero master Luis Enrique Juárez

Master Juárez uses a specialized distillation process unique to his region.

By incorporating a second plate on top of the copper alembic it produces two distillations in a single process. This adaptation gives a "fresher" flavor to mezcal, which is why it is known as distillation in refrescadera, or mezcal de refrescadera.

Benito Mezcal Distillation Process

The barril agave belongs to the family of agaves known as Karwinskii, and named as such by the Polish botanist who shared his last name upon it. This botanist studied these vertical agaves, long before he knew that mezcal could be made and this agave family has quickly become the favorite of many. This family of agave share similar notes among the various mezcals distilled from it and include: Cuixe, Madrecuixe, Tobaziche, among others.

The quality of the mezcal is throughout the entire processes, from the collection of the Barril agave, to its underground oven cooking, followed by the mashing in a tahona, proceeded by fermentation in wooden vats, and finally in the distillation in a refrescadera until the mezcal master accomplishes its 50 degrees of alcohol. The alcohol proof of 50 degrees permits us to distinguish the notes that characterize this pleasant barril mezcal from Benito.
