About Mezcal de Leyendas PueblaMezcal 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.
Don Federico Valentín Alva Ibañez has been teaching his son about mezcal production since he was a child. Now supervising the process, it's his son that has taken over the reins. Don Aaron, a 4th generation mezcalero from a long line of mezcal producers, uses fresh river water and deep well water in his palenque, where the agave is cooked in a lava-rock-lined pit for 3 days, crushed with a mechanical shredder, fermented for 5 days in oak tanks, and distilled in a copper alembic still. The agave is the tobala variant from the northern Puebla valleys. Bottled at 96 proof, it's a medicinal and peaty spirit with complex fruity and caramel notes.
