Corte Vetusto is the world's most highly awarded mezcal brand. Each small-batch and hand-crafted expression has taken top honours at the most respected Spirit Competitions in the World.
Corte Vetusto mezcal is hand-crafted by Juan Carlos Gonzalez Diaz, a 4th generation Zapotec Maestro Mezcalero. The art of mezcal making was passed down through the generations since his great grandfather, Don Mauro. The name of the brand Corte Vetusto means "the ancient cut" and comes from an old story about a master mezcalero's desire to create a cut of mezcal so divine that it invokes the spirit of generations before him. That sacred distillation of earth, fire and history is the Corte Vetusto.
An old Oaxacan proverb reads: 'Tequila is to wake the living, mezcal is to wake the dead'. Corte Vetusto certainly hope to wake more people to the possibilities of interesting, sophisticated mezcal.
