Single-batch artisan mezcal based on wild/semi-wild agaves. The brand was conceived by Craft Distillers & developed in collaboration with Destileria Los Danzantes. Craft-method distillation is what we believe in. Great product deserves an audience. Most of the best mezcal distillers produce tiny batches. The only way to keep this wonderful process going is by making it more widely available.

Hand-distilled March 2013 by Don Cosme Hernández and his son Cirilo in San Baltazar Guélavila from wild tobalá (agave potatorum). Beautiful tobalá elegance married to San Baltazar’s signature soft touch. 960 bottles. (750ml/47.5% abv)

RSP $110




Hand-distilled April 2018 by Don Valente Angel Garcia in Santa Maria la Pila, near Miahuatlan, from wild arroqueño (agave Americana). This man is a great distiller: the flavors are pure, the cuts precise. We like arroqueño, higher acidity helping to make the flavors clean and distinct. Nice intensity, nice minerality from Miahuatlan’s ferriferous clay shale.  960 bottles. (750 ml / 47% abv)

RSP $110.00




Hand-distilled May 2019 by Rodolfo Juan Juarez in San Juan del Rio from wild tepeztate (agave marmorum), wild jabali (agave convallis), and cultivated espadín (agave angustifolia).The use of jabali is noteworthy: intensity married to earthy fruitiness; it makes wonderful mezcal but is notoriously difficult to distill. Espadín, broadly round in flavor, is the perfect backdrop for wild agaves. Special stuff. 240 bottles. (750 ml / 46% abv) SOLD OUT

Hand-distilled April 2019 by Octavio Jiménez Méndez in Santiago Matatlan from wild tepextate (agave marmorata). Tepextate‘s rich intense fullness. 750 ml/46.5% abv $115.00




Hand-distilled December, 2022, by Rodolfo Juan Juarez in San Juan del Rio from Maguey Azul (agave tequilana), the agave used by statute for tequila. The richness and complexity of this mezcal in comparison with tequilas vividly demonstrate the value of including the agave solids in fermentation and distillation.(750ml/ 48% abv)




100% wild cenizo (agave durangensis) hand-distilled May 2019 by Don Rubén Solis Lozano in La Constancia, Durango. The upland agaves were wood-roasted, crushed by hand, fermented in a wood-covered underground pit using wild yeasts, double distilled in a 300-liter copper potstill, and bottled in August of 2019. The tiny cenizo is notoriously difficult to distill. Beautifully balanced 960 bottles. (750m/l 47% abv) SOLD OUT
