Sola de Vega is best known for two things: as the birthplace of “La Chilena,” a type of regional music, and the Mezcal Tobalá. People travel from all over Mexico to get this distillate. Tobalá is the crown jewel of Mezcal because of its beauty, rarity, and unique taste. It resembles the bud of a rose and unlike other agaves with “hijuelos,” seedlings sprouting from the mother plant, it only reproduces by seed. Since it is difficult to propagate, it is mostly found growing in remote locations. We are one of the few Mezcaleros to harvest and cook the Tobalá agave. Those lucky enough to experience it fall in love with its magnificent taste.
