Palenqueros Madrecuishe is made by maestro mezcalero Don Alberto “Beto” Ortiz in Miahuatlan, Oaxaca. Don Beto is renowned for his beautiful distillation and he’s become a legend in the area. The agave used in this mezcal are milled by hand and double distilled in a copper still.
Palenqueros Mezcal is marketed as Single Palenque mezcal, meaning that it's produced by a single mezcalero at a single distilling facility. The brand is a collaboration project between Tradición Chagoya, which owns and operates other mezcal brands like Donaji and Los Cuerudos, and Velier Italia, an Italian spirits company.
