Grand Tradition Mezcal Potosino

In recent years, the mezcal market and product have undergone a significant transformation. From its origins, the potosina ranches had integrated mezcal projects and created an identity in the region.

The railroad and the beginnings of the industrial revolution took them to the pinnacle. In its decline, popular tradition hid it among its taverns and reduced productions. The fall in reputation, prices and production followed; where some communities were even persecuted for their "illegal" production.

... the reunion with mezcal ...

Lately, things have changed favorably in these current and even globalized markets. The international popularity of tequila in the 90s opened a door to begin the reunion of mezcal with people's palates, acquiring a significant preference in recent years.

Pride of the Altiplano Potosino

In this way, the market changed again, and many consolidated entrepreneurs began to see better days, with greater movement in their factories and better prices at the door.

Also, many entrepreneurs found an opportunity to market it on a larger scale; for others the motivation to invest their time and resources was all in the adventure of opening new projects around the production and promotion of this Mexican drink. In particular, it prevented some from migrating due to lack of economic opportunities to continue the tradition of their land and family.
