Gregorio Hernández López

Gregorio Hernández López, along with his brother Gonzalo, were two of the first mezcaleros to partner with Casa Cortés, back in 2013. They have mostly produced Barril for El Jolgorio and in 2014 they began producing Espadín for the Nuestra Soledad Ejutla single village expression. After his brother Gonzalo retired, Gregorio began producing with the support of his two sons, Valentín and Joel, on their family ranch 30 minutes west of the main town of Ejutla de Crespo.
