Balancan Papalome

Balancan Spirits is a line of distinctive and uncertified agave distillates from all over Mexico. Each release in the collection represents traditional methods endemic to its place of origin. 

In the mountains of Ixcatlán, Amando Alvarado harvests Papalome - the local agave - roasting it in a traditional earthen oven before milling it by hand using machete and mallet. The agave is then fermented in bull hide, hung like a hammock between posts, before finally being twice-distilled in a traditional clay pot. Ancestral indeed.
