Noble Coyote - Coyote

Oaxaca, Mexico


The agave Coyote (agave karwinskii latrans) is endemic to the Amatlánes region of Oaxaca and is related to the agave Madre Cuishe. The seeds of a Coyote plant can produce different varieties of agave, its flowers can also pollinate and be pollinated by other types of agave. When the seed germinates, it is not uncommon for the resulting plants to be hybrids of agave Tobalá, Espadín and Tepextate. In indigenous cultures of North America, the coyote can, according to legend, take several different forms. It is for this reason, that the indigenous people of Oaxaca have named this plant after the mythological coyote.

The flavors of agave Coyote are as eccentric as its genetics. This spirit has a predominantly mineral taste, due to the rocky areas where it prefers to extend its roots but also has some wild notes. Agave Coyote perfectly convey the minerals from the ground where it grows: San Luis Amatlán, a community known for its long mezcalero tradition.
