Cuentacuentos Mezcal

Mezcal brings people together, stories make us friends.

Cuentacuentos tells the story of mezcal as it once was: truly small batch and made in traditional, family-owned palenques. For over 400 years, families throughout Mexico have distilled mezcales for their own use, for their friends and for others in their village. It is served at every major rite of passage in a Mexican life from cradle to grave; the batches needed for a given occasion seldom exceeded a couple hundred liters. Each is a unique, personal expression.

Introducing Cuentacuentos Mezcal

The opossum, or tlacuache, is on each bottle to represent this spirit. An homage to the Mexican folk tale of how the opossum stole Mezcal, tobacco and fire from the demons of the underworld as a gift to humans.
