Berta Vasquez

Twenty minutes past the famous clay-pot town of Santa Catarina Minas, you’ll find yourself in San Baltazar Chichicapam, home to independent mezcal producer Berta Vasquez. Berta wears her heart on her sleeve and openly shares her painful past with friends and strangers alike, making it easy to feel close to her and quickly form a close bond. At 64 years old, she has many stories of how she struggled as a woman in a man’s world, her outlook on life and on mezcal, and her vision for the future.
