Producer Notes: Tres Papalote Mezcal
Tres Papalote Mezcal is a drinks producer that specializes in creating high-quality mezcal. Mezcal is a type of distilled alcoholic beverage that is made from the agave plant. Tres Papalote Mezcal is based in Oaxaca, Mexico, which is known for producing some of the best mezcal in the world.
The company was founded by three friends who shared a passion for mezcal and a desire to create a product that was both authentic and innovative. They named their company Tres Papalote, which means “three kites” in Spanish, after the three kites that they used to fly together as children.
Tres Papalote Mezcal is made using traditional methods that have been passed down through generations of mezcal producers in Oaxaca. The agave plants are harvested by hand and roasted in underground pits, which gives the mezcal its distinctive smoky flavor. The mezcal is then distilled in copper stills and aged in oak barrels to give it a smooth, complex taste.
In addition to their flagship mezcal, Tres Papalote also produces a range of other drinks that are famous in their own right. These include:
1. Tres Papalote Espadin: This mezcal is made using only the Espadin agave plant, which gives it a more floral and fruity flavor than the original Tres Papalote mezcal.
2. Tres Papalote Tobala: This mezcal is made using the rare Tobala agave plant, which is known for its complex and nuanced flavor profile.
3. Tres Papalote Pechuga: This mezcal is made using a unique process that involves hanging a raw chicken breast in the still during the second distillation. The chicken breast infuses the mezcal with a rich, savory flavor that is unlike anything else.
Overall, Tres Papalote Mezcal is a drinks producer that is dedicated to creating high-quality, authentic mezcal using traditional methods. Their range of mezcal and other drinks are famous for their unique flavors and complex taste profiles, and they are a must-try for anyone who is interested in exploring the world of mezcal.

In Mexico, mezcal (also known as mezcal de agave) is a distilled alcoholic beverage derived from the agave plant, a slow-growing succulent that is native to Mexico and parts of Texas and is used to make mezcal. Mezcal was first produced in the 16th century by the conquistadors, who, as invading armies are wont to do in hostile territory, made getting drunk a top priority and experimented with distilling whiskey from whatever they could find in the area they were occupying.
The history of mezcal-making evolved over time to become an essential element of Mexican culture, but it wasn't until Prohibition drove thirsty American visitors to Mexico in pursuit of a legal buzz that mezcal became widely known to drinkers in the United States and around the world.
Mezcal can be prepared from any of the more than 30 different types of agave. Tobalá, tobaziche, tepeztate, arroqueo, and espadn are the most frequent agave varieties used for mezcal production. Espadn is the most prevalent agave variety and accounts for up to 90 percent of all mezcal production.
First produced in the 16th century, when Spanish conquerors ran out of cognac during their expedition to the New World, tequila is made by distilling the juice from the heart of a blue agave native to Jalisco, Mexico. Tequila comes in a variety of colors, from the transparent and unrestrained, known as Blanco, to the darkest aged in Reposado, Anejo and Extra Anejo vats. Popular as a main ingredient in refreshing margaritas, it is also commonly consumed pure or with the addition of lemon and salt.
