The Navarro family has been utilizing a unique clay pot still (campanilla) and other ancestral techniques for at least 4 generations. They are one of the last families to maintain this 400+ year tradition.
The Navarro's were honored by the Governor of San Luis Potosi as a part of the state's cultural patrimony. In 2017 and 2018 they received first place prize for best wild mezcal at the national encounter of mezcal and mezcaleros in Mexico City. Since their father passed away, the two brothers carry on the legacy of crafting some of the most unique and complex spirits on earth.
Daniel and Jesus gather wild Cuerno and Chino (Salmiana agave) from the desert hills of San Luis Potosi. These large and flavorful agaves typically mature in 14 to 16 years.
