Our raison to be is to create win-win relationships for all parts involved in the Mezcal process.
Implemented a creative model that is recreated and adapting to the needs that are presented to us.
We are committed to supporting local communities through Mezcal Masters, peasants and the local economy in all areas where we produce: Oaxaca, Durango, Guanajuato and Guerrero.
We produce a high quality mezcal while preserving the ecosystem and the earth.
The main objective of our philosophy is to be as sustainable as possible. That’s why we dedicate 15% of the gross profit of each bottle sold in the following points:
We plant up to 10 agaves per each agave jimado.
In 2015 the nursery program for the reforestation and resurgence of wild agaves began.
Our plantation nurserie have more than 6 species of agave, among them: Mexican, Tobalá, Cupreata, Boar, Tepeztate, Mexican Field.
To date, we have planted more than 150,000 seeds.
Completely Naturall and organic process
In fermentation process the use of ammonium sulphates and other chemical accelerants is common to reduce days required to achieve a sugar and alcohol level before distillation and to increase yields of how many kilos of agave are required per liters of Mezcal.
To date in our selection process of Mezcal Masters, it has been achieved that 4 of the teachers adopt the process of fermentation naturally without adding chemicals, in the same way that the other seven Mezcal Masters work.
With the aim of equitably widening the distribution of profits and increasing the production of Mezcal without altering the artisan process, we are currently working with 11 Mezcal Masters. Each one manages its rhythm, process and requirements.
Future Price of agave
– In 2014, we implemented the first future price for agave.
– This implies that agave farmers are not dependent on fluctuating market prices.
– Mezcal Amores Logia is the first mezcal brand to participate in this practice.
– We ensure regular income from a range of previously agreed agave prices.
– In this way, peasants can have a vision for the future and a stable income.
Micro credits for Mezcal Masters
Part of our budget is designed to be able to offer micro credits without interest to Mezcal Masters who are interested in investing in new equipment, extensions or agave purchases.
Together we analyze the projects and the importance of it and based on that we decide how to invest, they in turn are paying us with mezcal based on the time agreement we make.
As a result of this we have seen the increase of its volume and profit, and also the birth of new job offers inviting more people to join.
