An artisanal Mezcal that gives back to the community.

Paquera is an award-winning brand of authentic Mezcal that donates to the Union de Productores Agropecuarios del Distrito de Ejutla de Crespo (UPADEC), a union of palenques. They create artisanal Spirits that are meant to be savored and appreciated slowly and savored. Created with family methods that have been perfected over generations, Paquera showcases the unique production process of Mezcal and its rich culture.

Produced in San Miguel Ejutla, Paquera Espadin & Barril Mezcal Artesanal is a small-batch artisanal Mezcal. The combination of Espadin and Barril agave is fermented in locally-made Awewete wood barrels before it’s double-distilled in copper pot stills. Well-balanced yet complex, this approachable Mezcal greets with a spicy nose and delights you with its silky balanced palate, full of crisp flavors. Savor it neat or in a delicious cocktail.
 

*Paquera has recently changed their labels, and as the original labels are being phased out, there is still a chance that you might receive a bottle different than what is pictured. But rest assured, the liquid remains the same, regardless of the label.

While Mezcal is produced all across Mexico, most of the Mezcal we see is produced in the state of Oaxaca. Interestingly, over 70% of Mezcal is made from the Espadín agave—even though more than 20 types of agave are used to make Mezcal.

Espadín. That word means “sword” in Spanish because the leaves look like a mass of swords projecting out of the plant. Espadín Mezcals are most common because it has been the easiest agave to cultivate.

All Tequila is Mezcal, but not all Mezcal is Tequila.
