A unique twist on agave spirit made in limited batch by Standard Wormwood Distillery from Brooklyn, New York. Texas grown agave hearts and leaves smoked with pineapple and pumpkin seeds give a distinct character. You will find flavors reminiscent of tequila and smoky mescal but with spicier notes, deeper body and the unique touch of wormwood. This is for those who love the free range and unusual but divine


From the makers themselves “To be able to bring this spirit to life we brought up whole Agave Horrida from Texas.  For this limited release we distill an Agave and local NY corn thin mash with wormwood.  We use the whole Agave, hearts and leaves, and smoke it upstate at our farm for a full day with both mesquite and spent oak from our Wormwood Rye aging.  This leads to a balance between the smooth vegetal spiciness of a tequila that comes from the leaves of the agave, and a subtle smokey ember finish coming from the agave heart that's vapour infused during distillation - with wormwood tying together this complex arc.  Spicy fresh cut pepper notes come through on the nose to give way to a subtle smoky tropical finish and a lingering salinity, distinctly an Agave spirit in its own category.  Full bodied and smooth so great for both sipping straight and also mixing into a spirit forward Daiquiri.”
