Cuentacuentos Coyote Ancestral is produced by either Ángel Cruz Robles or Ángel Cruz Calvo in Sola de Vega, Oaxaca. Both mezcaleros craft their mezcal in the ancestral style using clay pot stills and mashing the agaves by hand. The plant takes 18-20 years to mature. Once harvested, the agave is cooked for 72 hours in a traditional underground horno and then milled by hand with a wooden mallet in a canoe. It is then naturally fermented in 8-9 days and doubled-distilled in clay pots Ángel’s technique imparts a caramel flavor that does not overpower agave Coyote’s inherent earthiness. The resulting mezcal has a pronounced minerality and benefits from the ancestral method to fully express its unique terroir.
