About This Producer:
El Tinieblo Mezcal is an ultra premium artisanal product that has been hand-distilled in the state of Tamaulipas by Master Mezcalero Don Baltazar Cruz. Ranch El Tinieblo, the 9000-acre farm where our maguey grow and the mezcal is made, is based on sustainability and with the desire to improve the economy of this rural state. Ranch El Tinieblo’s “local’s first" approach employs seven families in the Jimenez area as well as a number of local tradesmen who assist in the construction and maintenance of our palenque. For generations, El Tinieblo has been in the forefront of mezcal culture, conservation, and agave plant processing. We are proud of our history and strive for our craft mezcal to be enjoyed for centuries to come.
