Oaxaca, Mexico


Cuentacuentos chronicles the narrative of mezcal as it was once made: in tiny batches in traditional, family-owned palenques. For over 400 years, households throughout Mexico have distilled mezcales for their own consumption, as well as that of their friends and neighbors. From birth to grave, it is served at every important rite of passage in a Mexican's life; the amounts required for a specific event rarely surpassed a couple hundred liters. Each is a one-of-a-kind, personal expression. To represent this spirit, the opossum, or tlacuache, appears on each bottle. An ode to the Mexican folk tale of the opossum stealing Mezcal, tobacco, and fire from the devils of the underworld and giving them to humans as a gift.
