Palenqueros is a project created as a range of Mezcal to showcase the producers and distillers of single palenques as the protagonist of production.
The world of Mezcal has grown exponentially in a short time and has become more and more chaotic. This range aims to provide a clear path between the agriculture, the production and the liquid by maintaining the focus on the people behind (and on) the bottle.
