Aguerrido is a brand that comes from the heart of the state of Guerrero, one of the least represented mezcal producing states due to the difficulties with narco-trafickers in the area. Here we have a collective of well-known and seasoned maestros mezcaleros, with different expressions that each will take you on a wonderful journey.
Don Antonio is a maestro that conveys joy and deep knowledge for his craft.
He produces in a sort of mini valley where a lot of crops are grown. Sheep, & chicken roam around. His backyard was packed with cabbages when we came to visit.
His taberna had a special vibe, one where a lot of great mezcal sessions have been held.
