The TEPEZTATE weighs up to 890 lbs and is infamous among Palenqueros as a species that is as difficult to harvest as it is to transport. This, combined with the fact that the TEPEZTATE takes up to 28 years to mature, makes our TEPEZTATE one of the rarest and most exclusive mezcals in our portfolio. We recommend enjoying the TEPEZTATE’S intensely herbal and spicy flavors in a neat, 2 oz. pour or complement them with citrus in a Paloma or our signature cocktail, The Passionate Mezcalero.

Mala Mía™ means "my bad," and it is our way of paying our respects to the rare and mighty Magueys for allowing us to use their power for our Mala Mía™ Artesanal Mezcals. Our first collection presents a selection of 6 rare Magueys distilled by 3RD Generation Maestro Mezcalero, Saturnino Martínez Méndez, at PALENQUE TEPEXTATE in the village of Santiago Matatlán, Oaxaca, Mexico.
The Protected Denomination of Origin for Mezcal protects the distillation of 37 Agave species (referred to as "Magueys") from 9 different Mexican regions. Mezcal is made in distilleries called “Palenques" led by "Maestro Mezcaleros."
The combination of each region and Palenque's traditional production methods and each Maguey's unique characteristics and maturation process informs the magical flavors highlighted in our Mezcals.
We want to be known globally as the brand that expanded and elevated the mainstream perception of mezcal- shifting the mezcal narrative from “smoky tequila” to an intriguing and delicious premium spirit category that encompasses a wide spectrum of agave types, flavor profiles, and price points.
We want to disrupt, evolve, and become a leading voice in the mezcal category through our diverse portfolio of premium maguey mezcals and our focus on exciting storytelling aimed at educating and inspiring existing and soon-to-be mezcal enthusiasts.
