About this mezcal
Leyendas Maguey Cuishe is made with Agave karwinskii in the community of San Jerónimo Taviche, Oaxaca. Maestro Don Catarino Hernández has been producing agave spirits for over 50 years. He generally oversees mezcal production at his palenque, which is done mostly by his eldest son Felipe.
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.
