About this Mezcal Set.
A TRIBUTE TO OUR LOVED ONES - At Casa Cortes we celebrate life and venerate the death of our loved ones. In honour of our traditions, we pay a special and affectionate tribute to Dona Crispina Hernandez Romero. In life she was a Maestra Mezcalera, A loving mother and grandmother, She was one of the most important members of the Cortes family. She leaves us her wisdom, love and values. Her teachings and nobility will live on in the heart of each family member.
Dona Crispina devoted herself earnestly to the care and preservation of the sacred maguey, in this same way she cared about the well being of her children and family. She passed on her knowledge and respect for Mezcal and its heritage. Her influence is at the heart of Casa Cortes and its dedication to maintaining the values and traditions of mezcal production.
