Mezcal Made by Women
Traditionally, mezcal is made in small batches on family farms, sometimes for personal use (especially for parties and festivals), sometimes as a product to sell to help supplement their incomes. Due to the nature of subsistence farming, the entire family was usually expected to help in the production. But, regardless of each family members’ level of contribution, it was usually the patriarch who took the credit for all the production.
Sueños de Mujeres is committed to giving credit where credit is due. Our producers are either single women, making mezcales by hand on their own, or family matriarchs who take on the greatest and most important tasks: the monitoring, testing, and tasting of the fermented agave pulp and the distilled product itself.
All of our mezcaleras produce artesenal mezcal, fermented in wood and distilled in copper.
