Ejutla de Crespo, specifically Agua del Espino, is a town located almost 200 km southwest of Oaxaca
City. The municipality is situated in a mountainous region, with uneven topography and rugged hills.
The steep slopes favor hardy agaves and the struggle to survive in this harsh growing environment
comes through in the complexity of their mezcal. Don Pablo employs a method of distillation that is
common in the region of Ejutla, using a single, extended distillation in a modified pot still with a
cooling chamber called a refrescador, which contributes to the unique, bold flavor profile.
