Mezcales de Leyenda was founded more than 10 years ago in Mexico City. The driving force behind the brand is the passion and knowledge of the team behind Mezcales de Leyenda and the goal to better educate the public on mezcal.
Over the years, the brand has worked with dozens of mezcal producers to help them become certified by Mexico’s mezcal governing body, the CRM, in order to help them improve their production facilities and ensure the prosperity of these master “mezcaleros.”
Mezcales de Leyenda currently offers five different mezcals from five different regions, made from five unique agave plants. Each producer the brand has partnered with has created a mezcal that is not only special in its quality, but preserves the time-honored manner of production from harvest to distillation.
