The Tobala Agave, also known as Agave Potatorum, is considered the darling of the Mezcal World. The name comes from the Zapotec language, which means “hat is in the land of rock and clay.” It is small in stature but mighty in appearance and mostly found at elevations between 1,300 and 2,400 meters in limestone soil, tropical forests & dry rocky climates. The plant, due to its size, has a low yield and is more labor intensive, but its mezcal is considered delicate, light in body and big on aroma & flavor.
