About this mezcal
Gente de Mezcal Tepextate is produced by Aureliano Hernández, a 5th generation mezcalero, in San Baltazar Guelavila, Oaxaca. The agave piñas are cooked in a ground oven, crushed with a stone mill, naturally fermented in wooden vats, and distilled in copper pots. On the nose this mezcal is light and floral with notes of soft bitterness, pepper, and dried green chillies. Gente de Mezcal Tepeztate won a Gold Medal at the 2019 San Francisco World Spirits Competition.
Gente de Mezcal
Gente de Mezcal was founded in 2014 by three lovers of mezcal and its culture. The group founded Gente de Mezcal to promote the culture and work of Maestro Mezcaleros and their communities. In April 2019, Gente de Mezcal received international recognition from the San Francisco World Spirits Competition in the form of a Double Gold Medal for their Tobalá and a Gold Medal for their Espadín and also for their Tepeztate.
In Mexico City, Gente de Mezcal shares their mezcal through ‘El Salón’, an Airbnb experience hosted by the brand owners.
