Reservas de la Biosfera

 Mezcales de Leyenda presents ‘Reservas de la Biosfera’,  the first edition in our collection dedicated to most important national parks in Mexico.  We begin this series with a special mezcal from the reserve:  Tehuacán-Cuicatlán, at the the southern limits of Puebla with Oaxaca in the larges cactus reserve in the world

To bring to you this exquisite mezcal, with a base of regional magueyes, agave marmorata and agave macrocantha, we collaborate with the Ortega family, who are master mezcaleros from the region with four generations of experience between them. 

 All of the special editions from Mezcales de Leyenda have a special social cause. Through the edition ‘Reservas de la Biosfera’ we are donating a significant part of our proceeds to the conservation of regional cactacea in collaboration with local gropups.
