Tequila and Mezcal are part of our DNA,
The history extends to the time before Hernán Cortés attacked and murdered the Aztec in Mexico, who used to make a drink from the heart of the blue agave plant. Later, in the town of (you guessed it!) Tequila, Mexico, the first large-scale distiller of tequila was born– sometime in the 1600s– after the creation of mezcal. All tequilas are mezcal but not all mezcals are tequila, Modern tequila is actually traced back to the 1700s and 1800s with the emergence of the Cuervo and Sauza families, who began distilling tequila at large scales.
Women are increasingly becoming the outward face of mezcal and Tequila, a belated, but nevertheless inspiring movement worthy of amplifying. After all, legend has it that a female deity, Mayahuel, is the goddess of agave!
We are proud to explore these award-winning, women-led mezcal and tequila brands that are diversifying this dynamic spirits sector. While each has her own signature style, they all share a dual purpose of producing more balanced, approachable spirit and promoting the role of women in this still overwhelmingly patriarchal sector. Their stories are inspirational and motivating, showing us that yes, we can. Our Mission is to bring these amazing brands to you and share those stories. We hope you enjoy their products as much as we do.
We are proud to bring to our table: Yola Mezcal from Yola Jimenez, Mijenta from Ana Maria Romero, La Gritona & Leyenda De Mexico from Melly Barajas, Casa Dragones from Bertha Gonzales Nieves, and more to come!!!
