- Oaxaca, Mexico
These mezcals are produced in the small community of San Isidro Guishe, Oaxaca. José Lucas, a third generation distiller, currently oversees the family-run operation, where he shares the knowledge gleaned from his years of experience with his eleven children. He is proud of avoiding deforestation and of his skill in blending agave species and the discipline to work the fields in an organic and natural way.
Viejo Indecente sits in a unique location within the district of Miahuatlán. Its fields are among the driest in Oaxaca, with no more than 20 inches of rainfall per year, but the land’s proximity to the sea and exposure to the sea winds in the spring and fall contributes to Viejo Indecente’s subtle marine and salty notes.
With its natural agave flavor profile, Viejo Indecente is redefining the mexcal category, offering an expertly handcrafted, agave-forward spirit without the typical smoky notes found in the vast majority of other mezcals.
