Our Collection

Selected line of limited edition Mezcals

The Ancestral Collection is a selected line of limited edition Mezcals. Every production is crafted in micro-batches with ancestral distillation methods original from the state of Durango: Clay & Wood.

Every bottle is a piece of art, as they are hand-painted by local artists with different designs depending on the agave type. This line includes special Mezcals made with rare and unique agave varieties that are found within the Durango borders.

Our collections symbolize the Huichol art and culture from the southern region of Durango, making unique lots painted and decorated by hand. Each collection depicts a Durango Agave with a specific color for each variety, making each bottle a unique piece of art. Each year, there will be a single batch per Agave of our Ancestral Collection, making this an exclusive and selective line of fine mezcals from Northern Mexico.
