Mezcal de Leyendas is a brand that originated from curiosity, grew with passion, and has been driven by a mission to expand the understanding of mezcal. The company's story began over 15 years ago with an incidental encounter at a wedding in Oaxaca, which sparked the interest of the founders, leading them to immerse themselves in the enchanting world of this spirit.
In 2005, when tequila was the favored drink, Mezcal de Leyendas dared to stand out, establishing “La Botica,” the first mezcal bar in Mexico City. This revolutionary step generated a buzz around mezcal and paved the way for the company's extensive journey into this fascinating beverage.
While many were still exploring mezcals from Oaxaca, Mezcal de Leyendas was already journeying into various agave regions within the Mezcal's Denomination of Origin (D.O.) – the largest in the world. This exploration deepened the brand's understanding of different agave varieties and provided insights into the unique expressions created by many maestros mezcaleros, artisanal mezcal master distillers.
Not one to stay within familiar boundaries, Mezcal de Leyendas ventured into lesser-known regions outside the Mezcal D.O. These regions, although producing remarkable spirits, cannot legally use the term 'mezcal' due to their location outside the D.O.
In its constant quest for uniqueness, Mezcal de Leyendas began experimenting with rare, interesting agave species, including some that had never before been used in distillation. This experiment resulted in some of the most distinctive mezcals on the market.
One of the brand's proudest achievements is the production of Solar Mezcal, the world's first mezcal made solely using solar power. This innovative method minimizes the carbon footprint and environmental impact while emphasizing the pure flavors of the agave in a clean, non-smoked, and supremely smooth flavor profile.
Mezcal de Leyendas firmly believes that in time, mezcal will be known as the "Wine of Distillates" due to its unparalleled range of flavor profiles among distilled spirits.
The brand's mission is to redefine what mezcal is. It's not just a distillate with a worm or a spirit exclusively produced in Oaxaca. Instead, Mezcal de Leyendas aims to highlight mezcal as a vast universe of distinct distillates produced in various agave regions throughout Mexico.
For those eager to explore the world of mezcal, Mezcal de Leyendas stands ready to guide them on this captivating journey. The brand invites all to join them in unraveling the mystery of mezcal together.
