Origen Raíz was born of the roots of two familial traditions in different parts of Mexico. Six generations of master mezcaleros with proud Zapotec origins in Oaxaca, bound together with a group of mezcaleros, proudly Duranguenses. A project grew from this union, with respect for our Mother Earth and the gift She gave to our people, the Maguey Cenizo. Together, our traditions teach us to value the lessons of those who came before us, embedded in our roots, and appreciate the hard work and passion commanded by this noble, ancestral position. We are proud and committed to bringing the world a Mezcal that was born of respect for the knowledge and values we gain from our ancestors.
Origen Raíz represents both North and South... Emphasizing the notion of cultural sharing and learning for the benefit of the people. The goal is to unite the distinct regional cultures of Mexico through a shared tradition of celebrating life with the same passionate spirit. Oaxaca, a mountainous region in the far south, is rich in indigenous culture, including mezcal production. Durango, in the north, is vast and composed mostly of high elevation wildlands, also with strong ties to its indigenous heritage.
