About the Mezcalera--Victoria Mendez Gomez:
Doña Victoria is a leader in her community, always looking to better the people living in it. She’s been providing jobs for years in her palenque and nursery. The people help her clean agave, and they produce mezcal following her practices and traditions. Victoria has taught her children and neighbors sustainable methods to grow agave and to use natural fertilizers that are byproducts of the process. She believes mother earth is generous, and we need to respect her giving back as much as we can to prosper for years to come. Producing mezcal is a family tradition. Producing it with culture and passion is what makes her happy.
