About this mezcal
Paquera Espadin and Barril is made with 80% cultivated maguey Espadin and 20% semi-cultivated maguey Barril. This mezcal was curated for it’s use in cocktails but it’s also good neat. The agave used in this mezcal are cooked in an underground pit oven, mashed by horse-drawn tahona, fermented in oak vats, and double distilled in a copper still.
Paquera Mezcal is meant to be appreciated and savored. The brand recommends sipping Paquera slowly as to experience its quality. Created from a methodology perfected over generations of dedicated family artisans, their love for Mezcal has only deepened upon being exposed to its unique production process and rich culture.
Paquera’s mission and purpose is to contribute resources to the union de productores agropecuarios del distrito de Ejutla de crespo (UPADEC) which is a coalition of local palenques that work together to sustain and grow their micro-enterprises. This artisanal spirit is beloved by many and the brand is driven to honor its cultural importance in every bottle. The company strives to continue the history of appreciation and respect for the most precious spirit of all – Mezcal.
