About this mezcal
Mezcal de Leyendas Maguey Pichumel is made using Agave marmorata. This is produced by maestro mezcalero José “El Guero” Ortega in San Luis Atolotitlán, Puebla. Maestro José has been producing for over 20 years, using mostly Pichumel and Tobala.
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.
