Our story begins in the remote mountain regions of Oaxaca, Mexico, hidden in a small family Palenque, overlooking the vast desert vistas and agave green accents of the Oaxacan countryside.
Shrouded in tradition, Mestiza Negra tells the story of four hundred years, each bottle a celebration of our loved ones, the land that sustains us, and the world that we nurture.
From roasting our homegrown agaves beneath the Oaxacan sun, to carefully fermenting and distilling the purest mezcal, the journey from soil to bottle is our family photo album.
Expertly crafted by master distiller and female pioneer Juana Escobar Bautista, every drop is handmade to honor the great art and family tradition of real mezcal.
