About Mezcal de Leyendas Maguey Verde DurangoMezcal de Leyendas Maguey Verde Durango is created by 4th generation Maestro Mezcalero ‘Gil’ with over 20 years of experience in the northwest of Mexico. This is an artisanal mezcal blanco, crafted from maguey ‘verde’, one of the most widely distributed agaves in Mexico but it’s almost never used in mezcal production – it has a low yield and it’s difficult to handle. The agave is first roasted in a stone pit, crushed by a tahona stone, fermented in oak wood vats, and finally distilled in traditional copper alembic stills. This traditionally made mezcal greets with aromas of dried herbs and boasts a well-balanced palate, rich in minerality.
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.
