Mezcal Los Javis is a family owned and operated distillery. Their palaenque was built in Santiago Matatlan in 1979, and the Los Javis brand was founded in 2003 by Javier Mateo and his wife. The couple made a promise to plant and harvest the highest quality agave to create a mezcal of the finest variety. So fine that it would carry the family name, Javier, for three generations. Father, son, and grandson (all named Javier) began their journey when Javier Senior instilled in his family the quality and heritage of the mezcal making process.
