Distilled by father Atenogenes Garcia and his son José,
Madrecuixe (A. Karwinskii) is an agave endemic to Oaxaca. Atenogenes and José cultivate and harvest their own Madrecuixe outside of San Isidro Guishe, where their small palenque is located. The father and son mash their agave with a large stone called a tahona that is pulled by a bull, ferment the resulting mash and tepache in pine and cypress tanks with well water, and double-distill their spirit in copper pot stills. Between the two of them, father and son distill about 2,000 liters annually, usually from agaves Espadín, Bicuixe, and Madrecuixe.
