Mezcal de Leyendas is focused on bringing artisanal mezcals using rare and unique agaves from different regions within Mexico. Instead of focusing on one particular type, their aim is to use the most prevalent agaves from each region allowing them to guide the consumer across the entire DO of mezcal. These are sourced from diverse regions, highlighting the local terroir as well as showcasing the skills of local Maestros Mezcaleros. Each region ― be it Durango, Guerrero, Oaxaca, Puebla, or San Luis Potosi ― features one master producer of mezcal.

But they do far more than just that. In 2005 they opened the first Mexico City establishment that only sells artisanal mezcal helping spark the boom we see in mezcal today. They organize festivals and work to help the industry grow, educate, and take part in projects that deal with sustainability and fair trade ― both crucial aspects of securing a bright future for the famous Mexican spirits.

Mezcal de Leyendas Maguey Tobala Oaxaca is crafted by producer Aaron Robles who learned the trade from his father in law. Upon returning to Mexico, he took up making the mezcal that the region is famous for. The tobala agaves are grown sustainably and distilled on a mountainside, the distillery only reachable via a 3-hour horse ride from the nearest village. The piñas are roasted in lava-rock covered stone pits and ferment for 5 days in oak vats. Then they are double-distilled in a copper-pot still.
