Destileria Los Danzantes was founded in Santiago Matatlan, Oaxaca, Mexico in 1997. Santiago Matatlan is “The World Capital of Mezcal,” which sits in an agave-rich valley to the southeast of Oaxaca City.

Agave line the roads and seemingly stretch to the horizon as you drive through the small town. The distillery is owned by Jaimé and Gustavo Muñoz, who own five restaurants, including the well-known Los Danzantes Restaurant in Oaxaca city.

The distillery was originally purchased to create a dependable supply of high-quality Mezcal for their restaurants, but it soon grew to produce and bottle several brands for both local and international consumption.

In 2004, they hired Hector Vasquez de Abarca in to run the Los Danzantes distillery. Hector developed a blend of traditional production methods and modern distilling innovations. In 2009, Karina Abad Rojas, a trained lab chemist, took over, and has overseen the expansion of the distillery.

In addition to producing Los Danzantes (or Los Nahuales as it’s known in the US), they also curate and bottle Mezcal for Alipus and Mezcalero.
