About this mezcal
Leyenda Durango is made by mezcalero Ventura Gallegos, whose family has been producing mezcal for many generations. This mezcal is part of a co-op of mezcal producers, in a town called Nombre de Dios. This mezcal has floral aromas that mix with leather and wet clay. The flavor is buttery with notes of coriander and fruit. This is a display of the agave’s terroir, which includes almost desert like conditions where the agave grows among lava rocks.
Mezcal de Leyendas (previously labeled as Mezcales de Leyenda) believes they can improve some of the most marginalized communities in Mexico. They implement the best fair trade practices where they work, and they have many efforts in agave sustainability. Their mezcals come from the different mezcal-producing states. They also have some special edition, small-batch mezcals. The brand also releases the Pelotón de la Muerte line of mezcals.
In 2021, the brand (under Artisanal Distillates, LLC) raised money via the StartEngine platform at a $32.7 million pre-money valuation.
