This is Nombre de Dios Durango, this is México!
Our mezcal is made with 9 to 10 years old agave, wich produces that smooth and lasting taste. The agave grows wild in the mountains of the region, so it does not contain any fertilizers or chemicals. This peculiarity allows the land to retain its nutrients and produces the best quality agave, wich is selected one by one, and the pencas are cooked for six days under ground in a prehispanic oven, using volcanic stone and firewood.
This handcrafted process gives the mezcal a delicious, smooth and lasting sweet taste, with an amazing smooky wood aroma that gives the mezcal a great body.

People use to say that, “If you drink mezcal, you´ll go to hell”.
Many years ago, having a drink of mezcal was cause for excommunication. When the Spaniards arrived in Mexico, they took everything. They took all the gold, the land, the women and even mezcal. They liked mezcal so much that they no longer wanted to drink anything else. The Crown, noticing a decline in the importation of its alcoholic beverages, decided to ban all distillates of the maguey in the New Spain. No one could produce, sell or drink mezcal anymore. Then, the church supported the Crown initiative, threatening to excommunicate the rebels.
The producers, frightened, renounced their crops. Except one, who did not care what the Crown and the Church had to say and continued to cultivate agave where they least thought they would find it; in the desert mountains of Nombre de Dios, Durango, where the plant, grew wild for years, and secretly, he continued to produce mezcal. It would soon become Durango’s best kept secret.
He used only wild agave and the result was simply extraordinary. Everybody told him, “you are going to hell,” to which he always responded, ” I´ll keep drinking mezcal in hell.”
