ABOUT US

Sacapalabras is a mezcal full of culture and tradition; it is honesty, brotherhood, social responsibility and care for the environment, but above all it is a devout conviction that rises from the ancient customs of our people and proudly shows the scents and flavors of our land.

In the world of mezcal, being ancestral means to preserve the traditions, being ancestral means to rethink the traditions as a bridge that connect us with new generations, a bridge that let us transmit the best of our culture.

We use the original organic processes inherited through the time to create Sacapalabras. From the cooking of agave in traditional ovens, the grinding with wood mallet through the fermentation in sabino wood vats and distillation in clay pots, we take care of every detail in the process in order to keep the historical uniqueness of our ancestral beverage.

STORIES

Santa Catarina Minas is a community of Oaxaca that receives this name in honor of Santa Catarina de Alejandría and also because there were mines of different precious metals exploited in the past.

Minas, as it is known by its people, is a town that celebrates in each festivity its love for tradition, culture and community. The March Carnival, Palm Carving of San Pedro Mártir in April, Guelaguetza festival in July, Day of the Death in November and the Mayordomía of San Juan Evangelista in December, all these experiences feed the tradition every year, make it stronger, deeper, and, perhaps more important, these experiences bring the legacy of a community to all of us, to the world.

Mezcal is not a fashion, it is tradition, it means legacy. It is the contact with our roots and an act of respect and love towards ourselves. Sacapalabras tells stories of our ancestors and accompanies us in the stories that we build day by day.
