Get ready to meet the mastermind behind this bottle, the fantastic and multi-talented Maestra Berta Vasquez. As a single mother, grandmother, and now great-grandmother, she effortlessly balances the roles of both mother and father to her five children. Berta usually plucks the agaves herself from her own land, but sometimes teams up with her brother to produce the mezcal. Her Palenque (distillery) is open to all, and she loves to entertain with stories of her journey to becoming the first female mezcal producer in her family. At 66 years young, Berta still has plenty of energy and passion to share with the world! Get ready to experience hints of fresh mint and spicy flavors with a touch of earthiness from her latest creation.
