Hangin out with Gonzalo at Macurichos Mezcal. We had an amazing day watching this palenque operate.
Gonzalo then took us to a room where he had hundreds of old mezcal batches in glass jugs. He picked a couple and sampled away.
This place is a must-stop when you are on the Mezcal trail in Oaxaca! Or when you stop into Aroma Thyme, Farm to Table Bistro, we have around 10 of Gonzalo's selections.
Led by maestro mezcalero Gonzalo Martinez, Mezcal Macurichos is dedicated to the protection of the cultural tradition and the agricultural heritage of agave within the iconic mezcal production community of Santiago Matatlán, Oaxaca, Mexico. The family employs numerous neighbors and is one of the rare distillers the area who still produce using Ancestral methods, including clay pot stills. Gonzalo and his brothers cultivate their own diverse fields of agave – planting from seed and reforesting the diminishing wild agave populations.
