History of Mezcal

From the time of the gods and Aztec magic, mezcal has been the star of the party. That tradition has become part of our essence, from grandparents telling stories to young people searching for their favorite mezcal.

Agaves that break it

Agaves are like instruments in a rock band. Each has its own riff, its own style. The Espadín is like the lead guitar, the Tobalá is the bass that sets the rhythm, and the Jabalí is the drums that give it that wild touch. The diversity of agaves is the secret behind the symphony of flavors.

Field and Harvest: Chamba Santa

In the agave fields, the land becomes a canvas and the jimadores become artists. Growing agave is a blend of patience and love for mother earth. The jimadores are the guardians of the agaves, masterfully selecting those that are at their perfect point. Thus, each bottle carries with it the soul of the land.

Brewing and Extraction: The Precopeo of your meetings.

The decoction is like the sacred ritual before the feast. It is through the cooking inside the oven how those aromas that transport us to the heart of Mexico are achieved. Then, the extraction of the juice is like squeezing the very essence of the agave. Pure magic, pure flavor.

Fermentation: La Rumba del Agave

Fermentation is the party where natural yeasts become the DJs of our palate.It is the moment when agave transforms into that golden liquid we know and love.How not to fall in love with such a magical process?

Distillation: The Alembic Stills Show

Here in the stills, mezcal finds its personality. Each distillation is like a play with different acts. The copper, wood or clay stills give it that unique touch, that spark that makes each mezcal a unique experience.

Aging and Varieties: From Young to Wise

Young mezcals are like that party with your friends where everything is excitement and freshness. But the aged ones... ah the añejos!... they are like the wise old man who has lived through a thousand battles and tells you stories with every sip. From the splendor of youth to the wisdom of old age, mezcals take us on a journey of experiences.

Denomination of Origin and Regulations: La Cédula del Mezcalero

The Denomination of Origin is like the seal of authenticity that distinguishes mezcal legit. And the regulations are like the rules of the game, ensuring that no one plays dirty with our sacred beverage. may they respect the master of the bottles!

Social and Cultural Impact: The Local Hero

Mezcal is not only the soul of the fiesta, it is also the local hero. It contributes to the livelihood of many families and is a major player in our traditions. From the palenqueras to the master mezcaleros, all are part of this great mezcal family that magnifies our culture.

Current and Future Trends: The Mezcal Revolution

What does the future of mezcal hold? Well, a revolution of flavors! Mezcal masters are exploring new terrain, from ancestral techniques to innovations that will make us drool. And as for the globalization of mezcal, we're sure the whole world will want a sip of our Mexican magic.

Cheers Mezcaleros!

In short, mezcal is more than a drink, it is a direct bridge to our roots. Let's toast to mezcal,to the land that sees it born, to the hearts that distill it with love, and to all of us, who carry the mezcal flag with pride.
