Product Description

47.1% ABV

Batch #4 • 202 bottles

Alberto and his son-in-law Reynaldo distill Sierra Negra in Santa Catarina Albarradas, a town about 7,000 feet above sea level. While Alberto and  Reynaldo mash the cooked agave with mallets, Alberto´s wife and his daughter strip bark from oak branches called tepehuaje. This oak bark is added to the fermentation, as it is a natural source of nitrogen that helps stabilize the fermentation. Without the tepehuaje, the cold night temperatures would  stunt the ferment. The use of tree bark in fermentation is found almost exclusively in high altitude regions.
