Palenqueros Mexicano is made by maestro mezcalero Don Valente Angel in his tiny community of Santa Maria La Pila. The nose and the palate of this mezcal are full of fresh plants like sage and eucalyptus with a light veil of smoke. There are notes of pink pepper and a slight bitterness that’s balanced by citrus zest.
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.
