Teúl comes from the word ’Teutl’, which means god in the Aztec language Náhuatl. The blue agave was a sacred plant to the Aztecs.
The municipality is at the juncture of two small rivers: the Rio Grande and La Alticuata. The valley’s rich and fertile soil provides an excellent environment for growing agaves. This is the place where the Aurelio family established their mezcal ‘hacienda’ over 90 years ago.
His philosophy and traditional methods are aligned with the objective to produce mezcal with a degree of excellence to be enjoyed even by the highest demanding connoisseurs.
In order to produce Teulito Mezcal the agave hearts are roasted giving rise to its slightly smoky flavour. In order to produce Teulito Mezcal Reposado and Teulito Mezcal Anejo the liquid is aged in oak barrels for at least 6 and 12 months, respectively.
In the production process an emphasis is put on the quality of raw materials and on the process itself. Even in modern times, the process through which Teulito Mezcal is made has remained one hundred percent natural; no yeast or chemicals are added to accelerate the process.
Currently Don Aurelio’s mezcal is enjoyed in Mexico, The United States, Canada, Cuba, Guatemala, Australia, Japan and South Korea.
Teulito Mezcal has now set the first steps to bring together high-quality mezcal and Europe as a mezcal ambassador.
Teulito Mezcal Joven has an intense agave flavour and is the perfect ingredient for a delicious cocktail.
Teulito Mezcal Reposado is characterized by its fruity aftertaste and oak flavour, which results from a barrel-aging process of at least 6 months.
Teulito Mezcal Añejo has aged in barrels of oak for at least 12 months, resulting in an incredible intense taste.
