About this mezcal

Los Cuerudos Joven is made with agave Espadin in Las Margaritas, San Pedro Totolapam, Oaxaca. This mezcal is produced by mezcalero Petronilo Rosario Altamirano. Las Margaritas is about 780 meters above sea level. This mezcal is traditionally produced and tastes earthy, with notes of dark fruit and smoke.

Los Cuerudos Mezcal

"Los Cuerudos" were an armed revolutionary group from the southern highlands of Oaxaca. They were named for their custom of wearing flashing leather jackets. Jorge Chagoya, the first link in the "Tradicion Chagoya" that includes Los Cuerudos and Donaji Mezcal, became the primary producer of mezcal in the region at age 17, and he joined the Los Cuerudos army to defend their lands from rival soldiers. Five generations later, his family still owns their land and they are still making mezcal. This is it.
