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 Refugio is a fundamental pillar to the Aguerrido Family. He regularly visits all other maestros, goes to most of the fairs outside its community and is also the one that can muscle larger productions. He is funny, outgoing and creates cohesion within the collective.
His Fabrica/ taberna "El Pochote" is also located in a prime location where stone (for the cooking), Spring water and Palma (used to cover the uncooked agave) & agave are quick at hand. He makes a delicious Cupreata infused with Chumilin, a classic recipe from the state.
