For the making of this batch, Don Tomás and his sons selected six medium-sized, but capón, Tobaziche magueyes from a rocky, white parcel from a neighboring village known for the quality of their maguey. After roasting for five days, the six piñas were separated from the rest of the contents of the oven and worked apart. The result was a delicious 60 liters made available in a special release in collaboration with Agavera in Berlin. When presented to the judges of the 2021 Berlin Craft Spirits festival, it received a 95.25 point grading and was awarded a gold medal and Best in Class for agave spirits.
