¡Adelante! Mezcal is the distilled essence of the Agave plant. Nothing more. Handcrafted in small batches in Oaxaca, Mexico and distilled to perfection by the guiding hand of Maestro Mezcalero, José Manuel Méndez, ADELANTE is a spirit meant to be sipped & savored.
Aged by the elements, fermented by nature, ADELANTE relies on traditional methods passed down for generations. From cultivation to bottling, the entire process is a labor of love and a true expression of craft. Let it clarify your thoughts or blow them into a million pieces. Invite it in, and allow it to transport you to another time, another place.
I fell in love with the spirit after sipping it in the dessert amongst a sea of wildflowers. This sounds like a fantasy and I’m not trying to romanticize a moment from my past but without a doubt, the mezcal made the colors of our surroundings more vibrant, the air crisper, and it ultimately raised my awareness and led me to take special notice of the moment. After this experience, I took a deep dive into learning the history, heritage, and cultural importance of mezcal, which took my appreciation to an even higher level. The next logical step for me was to share this beautiful spirit with my community.

¡Adelante! mezcal exists to bridge the gap between the maestro mezcalero and the conscious spirits consumer. We hope to cultivate a deep reverence and true appreciation for the craft of mezcal making and the work of the mezcalero and his team. We plan to do this by working towards rightfully elevating perception of mezcal and Mexican culture. We believe that mezcal is a spirit that ought to be thoughtfully and respectfully consumed. If consumed properly, we believe that mezcal can function as a tool, a way to extend our capacities beyond those that nature has originally endowed us with.
“To us, to them, to everyone in between.”
