Mezcalero Eduardo Cortez Perez is the son of Tio Tello and this batch of Coyote was distilled in 2020 at their family's palenque in El Nanche, Miahuatlan. The unusual Coyote agave is thought to be a hybrid of Agave Karwinskii (cuishe, madrecuishe, etc.) and Agave Potatorum (Tobala). This rarity is not to be confused with the larger Agave Americana called Coyote in other parts of Oaxaca. An extremely limited batch and Lalo's first export batch, he's used traditional underground ovens and the agave is milled by hand using machete and wooden hammers. It's fermented in cypress vats and distilled twice on tiny copper pots. Current batch is bottled at 46.57% abv.
