Cementerio Mezcalero

 Mezcales de Leyenda presents the first edition of the series: ‘Cementerio Mezcalero’ (Mezcal Graveyard), a collection of mezcales aged in glass that honors a long time tradition often related to small comunities, in which some ofthe best ’mezcales’ are aged in glass containers, generally underground to be unearthed for family celebrations suchas weddings, baptisms, or some other special occasions.

The ‘desentierres mezcaleros‘ or mezcal unearthing, traditionally take place in Titzio, Michoacán, during the month of November, for the celebration of ‘Día de Muertos’ , (Day of the dead).

All the Special editions of Mezcales de Leyenda, are related to a social cause, with ’Cementerio Mezcalero’, we will donate a significant part of the proceeds for tourism equipment in Tzitzio, Michoacan in order to promote the ‘desentierros mezcaleros’ (mezcal unearthing) traditionally held during the celebration of ‘Día de muertos‘, (Day of the dead).
