About this mezcal

Mezcales de Leyenda Grandes Leyendas is a limited edition series that recognizes great master mezcaleros over the age of 70. The first edition, released in 2016, is produced by and honors mezcalero Don Anastacio, who created this ancestral mezcal using wild agave Cupreata from northern Guerrero. All of the special editions from Mezcales de Leyenda have a special social cause. Through the edition ‘Grandes Leyendas’, the brand is donating a significant portion of the proceeds to Don Anastacio and his family.

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.

I did a tasting with a few very neat Leyendas bottles at Las Perlas in Austin and this expression from Don Anastacio was my favorite of the lineup. The final product is a craft of a person with more than half a century of time perfecting his product, and it truly shows. It was so refined and had such a strong presence on that lineup. Everytime I took a sip of one of the other bottles, I immediately wanted to come back to this one. Phenomenal, would love to find a bottle of this.
