About this destilado de agave
Cuentacuentos Tepeztate from Everardo Garcia Salvador was produced in the small community of San Pablo Mitla, which is also home to the Mitla ruins, the second most important archeological site in the state of Oaxaca. Everardo passed away tragically before his mezcal reached the US in early 2022. This is the last batch of mezcal that Everardo produced before his passing. All profits from the sale of this mezcal go directly to his surviving family.
Cuentacuentos curates small-batch traditional mezcals and destilados de agave from producers across the state of Oaxaca. Cuentacuentos released its first 6 mezcal expressions in 2018; future releases from the brand will change over time and include non-certified mezcals. The logo and bottle artwork (by artist Cesar Ruiz Conseco) features an opossum or tlacuache in Spanish. The tlacuache on the logo is El Viejito, the little old man opposum who stole mezcal from the demons as a service to humanity. The tlacuache ranks with the jaguar, eagle, and burro in importance in Zapotec, Taina, and Mexican mythologies. Cuentacuentos is bottled under NOM-O20X by Carlos Méndez Blas. The Cuentacuentos motto is Mezcal brings people together, stories make us friends.
