"A MAGICAL STARDUST KISSED THE ZAPOTEC LAND IN THE MOST ANCIENT NIGHT OF OUR TIMES. IT WAS THE FIRST KISS BETWEEN THE SPACE AND MOTHER EARTH...

That night, a new land was born in Oaxaca, the place where our sacred agaves create a nectar that contains the delicious romance of the first cosmic kiss.

MAGUEY CULTIVATION

rufina_nosotros

For 8 years, our agaves are bathed in sunlight and absorb organic nutrients from Mother Earth. Later, we extract the heart of the plants and cook them in a conical stone oven, which adds a smoky flavor to the magical drink.

Once the hearts of the agave acquire a brownish color, they are grinded in a Chilean tahona. This grinding system consists of a stone base in which a 500 kg circular stone turns by pulling it with a mule.

The mosto (grinded agave heart) is placed in an oak wood tub between 5 and 12 days depending on the environmental conditions. After the sugars are fermented and transformed into alcohol, the fermented mosto is placed in a copper alembic and heated with oak wood. The mosto evaporates and, when passing through the alembic's coil, the liquid condenses and becomes our mezcal Rufina.
