About this mezcal

Leyendas 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.

Leyendas Mezcal

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.

Fruity on the nose, this mezcal from Durango is different than what you’ll taste from Oaxaca. It’s a very light mezcal on the palate with notes of honey, butter, fruit, rosewater, and citrus.

Somewhat buttery with notes of sour apples and vinegar on the nose. The mezcal is light and easy to drink. It doesn’t linger too long. Its buttery taste is signature for this region and is enjoyable. There’s a subtle saltiness that I also enjoy in this mezcal.
