Papalometl (A. Potatorum) as a way to preserve the tradition of his isolated town, Santa María Ixcatlan, Oaxaca. After spending most of his childhood at his father's palenque, Amando distilled his first batch as a 15-year old. He learned how to harvest ripe wild and cultivated agave with a machete, cook it in an earthen oven, mash it by hand with a wooden mallet, ferment it in rawhides and double-distill it in small clay pots from his father, Alvarado. Despite his young age, Amando is one of only a dozen distillers who maintain the centuries-old practice of fermenting in rawhide and distilling in clay.
