Our producer Maestro Celso Martinez Lopez has a family heritage of mezcal production going back a hundred years to a time when his ancestors cooked maguey in oven pits, distilled in clay pots, and fermented in the rock wells. His ancestral lands sit on the ridge “Nueve Puntas” overlooking his palenque and the town of Santiago Matatlan, the capital of mezcal. Born into the Mezcalero way of life, he started the learning process in childhood, and with the passion passed down from his father and grandfather he was producing mezcal by the time he was a young teenager. This is the legacy and pride going into every batch distilled at his palenque.
We now have formed Frijolotes LLC, a spirit import and worldwide distributing company specializing in agave spirits from Mexico. We have worked out all the regulatory and logistical hurdles to assemble a supply chain into the heart of Mexico
