Fuego y Humo Mezcal

Fuego y Humo Mezcal is produced by 3rd generation maestro mezcalero Jose Manuel Mendez in San Dionisio Ocotepec, Oaxaca. José’s father, and both sets of grandfathers, were mezcaleros. From these generations, the trades and tricks of mezcal production have been passed down and not much of the actual process has changed. José still proudly produces mezcal the way his father taught him and his father before that. His father (Manuel) still helps José from time to time, although he is officially “retired”.

Through this familial lineage, he was taught all aspects of becoming a mezcalero which focus on the artisanal practices and methods.
