Papalometl (Agave Cupreata)
Eber Villalobos has been in the mezcal trade for 11 years. He decided to use his knowledge to produce a genuinely excellent mezcal – no bells & whistles, no over-blown hype: just the real thing. Eber has worked in Silacoyoapam, up north in the mountainous Mizteca, where he sources his wild papalometl (agave cupreata), but has moved to a notably well-run distillery in Santiago Matatlan. Observe how clean the place is: being meticulous tends to mean great product.
