A COMPANY BORN FROM THEIR LOVE OF MEZCAL
Gracias a Dios was formed by 4th generation Maestro Mezcalero and Mageuyero with owners Pablo López, Enrique Jiménez and Xaime Niembro. They owned a Mezcal bar in Querétaro in Mexico and sold mezcal produced by different maestros mezcaleros from many different regions of Oaxaca.
They met Oscar Hernández in Matatlán after two years of traveling through Oaxaca. They decided to create a brand and partner with him. He was born and raised in Matatlán. Oscar began to work in his parent’s factory. His mother taught him how to make mezcal when he was 14 years old. Since then, he sows maguey and produces mezcal. Gracias a Dios is a 100% Mexican company and are passionate about what they do and they always look for the best quality in every aspect of their products.
WHAT GRACIAS A DIOS PREACH
Quality First - they drink what they produce.
Fair Trade - for local workers with fair wages.
Tradition - they respect the history of 4 generations.
GRACIAS A DIOS PRODUCTION PROCESS
Sow and Harvest - Gracios' Espadín agave needs at least 6 years to mature and be ready to make good mezcal. The leaves of the agave are removed from the hearts, known as piñas.
Cooking - the piñas are cooked for approximately 4 days in a dirt oven heated by wood and volcanic rock, covered by maguey and pulp dirt.
Grinding - once cooked, the piñas are crushed in a one-horse powered stone grinder to get the pulp of the maguey.
Fermentation - the pulp rests in pine vats and ferments for 10 to 15 days, depending on the weather.
Distilling - the fermented maguey mash is put into a copper still where it’s boiled and vapours condensed into alcohol. The mezcal is distilled twice.
Bottling - white mezcal is bottled immediately, while Reposado rests in American oak barrels for three months.
