Mezonte is an non-governmental organization (NGO) that promotes, supports and preserves the production and practices of traditional agave spirits. Mezonte’s main objective is to create awareness of the cultural and biological value that these spirits represent. They feature agave spirits from all over Mexico, with an emphasis on Jalisco and Michoacán.
Lorenzo Virgen has more than 10 varieties of Agave on his land. On the horizon, you can see the Colima’s Volcano, the backdrop that for atleast 3 generations were taught before him, and where he is now teaching his grandsons and grandaughters how to make mezcal.
