Fatherly Advice

The Brains Behind It

Finding unity in production

In 2009, co-founder Alejandro Champion started the Mezcal Unión project with a group of friends. Interested in the mezcal process, they spoke with farmers and producers throughout Oaxaca and learned that the community was lacking unity. If they could unite the independent mezcal producing families, they could help create a brighter, more stable future for mezcal. They started Mezcal Unión with the goal of creating a collaborative network allowing independent producers to benefit from financial and technical support from the project and still maintain their freedom and independence.
