Agave 

The agave Tobalá (agave potatorum) used in Noble Coyote mezcal comes from the San Luis Amatlán region of Oaxaca. It is one of the biggest varieties of this relatively small species of agaves. Unlike the classic Tobalá heart of the agave plant, the piña, typically measure from 30 to 60 cm, it is common to see Noble Coyote Tobalá – both cultivated and wild – measuring up from 1.0 to 1.5 meters. Tobalá grows in the shade of trees like truffles. It’s considered the “king of the agaves”. Its name in Nahuatl, the Aztecan language, means butterfly. It grows on limestone and sandy rocks, in woods at an altitude of between 1200 and 2300 metres. They also have a highly aesthetically pleasing appearance and it is common to see them used as ornaments in Oaxaca.

 

Mezcalero Comment

Tobalá is the only wild species which has been "cultivated" - although not 100%. Fifteen years ago, all Tobalá agave used for Mezcal was harvested 100% in the wild. Today, Noble Coyote have accomplished what seemed impossible for many: to cultivate the otherwise wild growing Tobalá agave. This secures the stock for the production of fine mezcals and protects this rare species and its continued existence in the wild.

For two years I tried different mezcal varieties in bars in Munich and Berlin. Nothing convinced me. A new mezcal of greater intensity and inspiration was needed.
