For mezcal nerds that have been paying attention, Vago has been slowly expanding their ensamble selections, encouraging the mezcaleros to experiment with blending flavors from different agave varietals into a single, complete mezcal with an intriguing and complex profile. As many in Oaxaca City will attest to, this method of production is a very accurate window into the past of mezcal, before the boom demanded expressions that catered to a curiosity to understand individual agave's flavors. Being subsistence farmers in remote locations, mezcaleros of previous generations would typically fill their pits with whatever they could scrape together. This practice resulted in batches of mezcal that constantly evolved with the environment.

Lot A-19-TC-18 was distilled by mezcalero Aquilino Garcia, from 53% Tepeztate and 47% Cuixe.
