surrounded by mountains,

In the rocky soil of the mountains of Oaxaca, our agaves are planted without pesticides or synthetic fertilizers.

the ritual begins  From the earth,

where the magical hands of our certified producers cut the agaves that are at the right maturity for everything to begin.


They cut the quiote, when it emerges, so that the sugar of the plant is preserved in the pineapple.
All our pineapples come from maguey capons, and we patiently wait for the fruits of a long maturation process, which depends on the type of agave, to continue the ritual.

for our agaves  sprat, this takes between 7 and 8 years; for Tobala, 10 and 11 years; while for the Espadín/Tepestate Ensemble, the wait takes up to 15 years.


For its cooking, we use a conical volcano stone oven with oak firewood where, once the pineapples are cut, they are covered and sealed with earth to be later cooked.

The cooking process, depending on the agaves, ranges between 4 and 8 days.

From the second day,  the master mezcalero carefully checks the cooking of the agaves.

The care and wisdom of the teacher is vital,

because any mistake in the process will cost all
a generation of mezcal.


The pineapples, once cooked, are broken into small pieces and passed to a large stone wheel, known as a bakery, where, with the help of a horse, they are crushed until they create a fiber that is later moved to some vats where they are let stand for fermentation.

After fermentation,  the fiber is removed from the vats and placed in the copper stills, where a double distillation is carried out

to obtain the finest distillate.


Each of the stages  that give life to Capotlán are certified by the Regulatory Council of the
Mezcal; fields, palenque, bottling, storage and marketing.

At Capotlán, quality is non-negotiable.


in Capotlán  We are committed to quality and excellence  in each of our processes, from agave to bottling;

therefore, each drop is guaranteed to have gone through an exhaustive process of regulation, certification and quality control by the Mexican authorities.
