Our story with Derrumbes starts in a taxi on our way to Santa Catarina Minas to meet Graciela, but this is not her story. Javier, the lovely man that drives the taxi, is actually not a taxi driver at all, but a maestro mezcalero using his dad’s old cab for tax reasons. It was really nice of Javier to offer to drive us to a different distillery than his own, just because he is a really good man. Javier produces a mezcal called Los Javis, that is his thing. On the side he produces a few special batches for Esteban, the man behind the brand Derrumbes. Esteban is expanding the brand slowly but surely and will release Mezcals from producers of his liking and from different states in Mexico. Everything about these Mezcals is anything but usual.
