An exceptional blended Mezcal dripping with authentic craft and distilled in copper and clay stills.

As a boy, Juan Carlos Gonzalez Diaz watched his father make Mezcal. But he left the agave fields to study building design, eventually becoming a professional architect in Mexico. But, as he tells the tale, the voices of his ancestor and heritage called to him from the fields and he returned to become the fourth generation of Mezcaleros in his family. His brand — Corte Vetusto — means "ancient cut" and speaks to the spiritual connection to the ancient art of Mezcal.

Corte Vetusto makes three Mezcal editions. The first two are focused on Espadin and Tobala agave. Their Ensamble release is an annual limited edition where a variety of agaves are assembled like the grapes in a fine Bordeaux Wine. This means that each release is unique in aroma and on the palate.

Corte Vetusto Mezcal Ensamble II is equal parts Espadin, Tobala, and Madrecuishe agave that have been slow-roasted in an earthen oven, crushed with a stone tahona, and naturally fermented. Distillation is performed on a combination of copper and rare clay stills. It is an un-aged (Joven) bottled at 43.5% ABV that took the Double Gold Medal at the International Spirits Challenge in 2020 and the Gold Medal with "Best of Category" at Craft Spirits, 2019.
