About this mezcal
Mezcales de Leyenda Reservas de la Biosfera, is a special collection dedicated to most important national parks in Mexico. Tehuacán-Cuicatlán, the first edition released in 2016, is at the the southern limits of Puebla with Oaxaca and is the largest cactus reserve in the world. Significant portions of the proceeds go towards the conservation of regional cactacea in collaboration with local groups. This mezcal was produced by the Ortega family: Don Bernardo, grandfather and first generation mezcalero, his son Don José and son Aquilino, third generation. The agaves used in this mezcal are agave Marmorata and agave Macrocantha.
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.
