Mezcal UNIÓN is an artisanal handcrafted spirit produced by the union of Zapotec Mezcal producer families from the Sierra of Oaxaca, Mexico. Our core is to unite families offering them a fair trade business model and path to social development.

Mezcal UNIÓN was born with the intention of creating positive change in Mexico. We believe that working in unity and collaboration is the only way to preserve the millenary tradition of producing artisanal Mezcal. The best way of feeling and tasting Mexico is through its Mezcal.

Our vision is to generate as much progress as we can through working together as a co-op. Investing and supporting indigenous families so that they can start their own workshops, continue to reforest the fields and together spread the word of UNIÓN in every bottle through out the world.

Bottle size: 750ml

Notes of Scent & Flavor

  • Agave Blend

    Our mezcal is a blend of 8 year old agave Espadín and 14 year old wild agave Cirial. The range of flavors is impressive with diverse fruit, herbal, wood, citrus and earth connotations, slightly smoked, very balanced between the flavor of the agaves and the aromas of the process.
  • Wood Fire

    The harvested plants are cooked on a conical rock pit (oven) underneath the ground, with Encino wood fire and pre selected river stones. Fermented with natural yeast. Double distillation in cooper pits.

“Mezcal Unión is very balanced between the flavor of the agave and the flavor of the process.”


Artisanal production from a union of Oaxacan families. Bottled at the source in San Baltazar Guelavila, Oaxaca, Mexico. The sap from the heart of the maguey plant is the base material in the production of mezcal. After the agave is harvested, the spines of the plant are cut off. The hearts, or piñas, are placed in an underground oven in which a wood fire has been built with hot river rocks layered on top. Once the rocks are red-hot, the piñas are placed on top, covered, and left to roast.

This is the traditional way of making mezcal and what gives it its characteristic flavor.

After removing the piñas from the oven, they are crushed either by hand with a mallet or a stone mill powered by a horse. After this process is finished, the bagazo, the name of the piña pulp, is put into wooden vats and allowed to ferment. There, bacteria transforms the sugars in the pulp into alcohol.

Distillation is next: the bagazo is shoveled into a clay or copper pot still, indispensible to achieve the flavor of artisanal mezcal. Finally, it is brought to a boil and the mezcal condensation travels through copper tubes cooled with water.
