About this mezcal
Catedral Espadin + Mexicano is produced by Joel Santiago Hernandez in Zimatlan de Alverez, Oaxaca. Maestro Mezcalero Joel has lived in the region his whole life and has been crafting handmade mezcal for decades. He learned how to distill from his father, and his father’s father. To Joel, each plant has a story that deserves to be told. Joel’s palenque is kosher certified.
This mezcal won Best in Class at the 2022 Craft Distiller Spirit Competition, a Gold Medal at the 2022 Craft Distiller Spirit Competition, and a Gold Medal at the 2022 Las Vegas Global Spirit Awards.
Catedral Mezcal has pledged a portion of the stock in the US brand to a nonprofit in Mexico entitled “Catedral de mi Padre Community Support Organization.” The mandate of the fund is for the betterment of the families making Catedral Mezcal in Oaxaca. The process has been structured so that the maestro mezcaleros receive equity based on their individual contributions of mezcal to the brand.
