REYES Y COBARDES
In 2014 Mezcaleros Juan Claudio and Juan Manuel built their distillery in the heart of Oaxaca after years of studying the techniques of mezcal masters who have been practicing the craft for generations. Located in the beautiful cloud forests in the mountains of the Sola de Vega region of Oaxaca, this distillery is the cornerstone of a whole vision. This vision includes the preservation and sustainable use of all the resources used in the production of the spirits. Our initiatives include a multi-varietal seed bank, and reforestation programs that promote sustainable cultivation methods. This vision also guides our production practices which follow biodynamic principles and when possible, utilize solar energy, the composting of spent agave pulp, and even converting unusable distillate to be used as a fuel source to power our facil-ity’s machinery. Our three mezcals are brought to this facility in the final stages of production from each maestro’s personal production site. From here we work with the dis-tillers to perfect and bottle the final distillate. The spirits that come out of our distillery have imbued in them the pride and the knowledge of what is arguably the biggest and most valuable export Mexico has, its culture and its flavor. Each label includes important details that emphasize regionally nuanced production methods, and terroir driven characteristics pertaining to soil types, agave variet-als, and specific growing sub-regions.
