About this destilado de agave
The 4th Rabbit Agave Spirit is made with “100% Karoo Agave,” which is Agave americana that grows in the semi-arid region to the north of Cape Town. The Agave plants are harvested by hand and cooked in a traditional stone-lined pit for 7 – 12 days. The cooked Agave is then fermented in wooden fermenting vats and then distilled in a copper pot still.
4th Rabbit Agave Spirits
The 4th Rabbit is a mezcal-style agave spirit from South Africa. The name 4th Rabbit comes from the legend of 400 rabbits that is often associated with mezcal. Reportedly, none was more mischievous than the 4th Rabbit, The Winged One. Legend has it he stole the Mother Agave and flew around the world looking for a desolate place to hide it from his siblings. The mischievous 4th Rabbit traveled far and wide for the perfect place to hide his precious agave plant. He searched for rich red earth, dry hot sun and inhospitable terrain. He found the Karoo.
