Dixeebe Tobala Mezcal, created by Valentin Cortes in Santiago Matatlan, Oaxaca, is a distinctive mezcal that embodies the rich tradition and expertise of the Cortes family. This mezcal is crafted from the maguey Tobala (Agave potatorum), a type of agave known for its exceptional qualities. The production of Dixeebe Tobala follows the time-honored methods of mezcal making, including cooking the agave in an underground pit oven, milling it using a tahona (a traditional stone wheel), and double distilling it in a copper still.
Released as part of the US launch of Dixeebe in March 2022, Dixeebe Tobala was introduced in limited quantities, with early editions consisting of just a few dozen bottles. This exclusivity highlights the brand's dedication to quality and artisanal craftsmanship. The decision to offer Dixeebe Tobala in 375ml bottles is a strategic move by Asis Cortes, aiming to make premium mezcal more accessible and affordable to a broader audience.
The flavor profile of Dixeebe Tobala offers a unique sensory experience. Unlike the typical fruit-forward Tobala mezcals, it presents a bouquet of enchanting floral aromas on the nose, complemented by subtle notes of papaya. On the palate, it reveals an earthy and mineral character, intertwined with herbal nuances and a hint of peppercorns. The overall experience is a journey through the distinctive flavors of this unique agave variety, leaving a lasting impression.
Valentin Cortes' expertise and commitment to the craft are evident in every sip of Dixeebe Tobala, making it an exclusive and sought-after choice for mezcal connoisseurs. Its bold and complex flavors encapsulate the essence of Oaxaca's rich mezcal tradition
