The term "mezcal" finds its linguistic roots in Mexcalli Náhuatl, where "metl" symbolizes maguey, and "ixcalli" denotes cooked—a poetic nod to the artistry involved in crafting this renowned elixir. Mezcal Nucano proudly offers an authentic artisanal mezcal, a product of the devoted men of the field who work the land in its purest and most traditional form.

Mezcal Nucano becomes a tangible piece of Oaxaca, a testament to the rich heritage and artisanal dedication ingrained in every drop.
Nucano, known as "Great Fire," transcends being merely a name; it embodies the spirit of a brave Mixtec warrior entwined in the history of Oaxaca. Falling in love with the Zapotec Princess Donají, Nucano embarked on a quest for peace between two nations, governing the Zapotecs with the same nobility and respect that his beloved Donají would have embraced. Legend has it that their bodies rest beneath a flagstone in the Cuilapam de Guerrero church in Oaxaca.
Mezcal Nucano proudly stands as an emblem of Oaxacan pride, a joven (unaged) mezcal produced in small batches. Crafted from fully mature, eight-year-old Espadín agaves, hand-harvested with care, the mezcal undergoes a meticulous process. The agaves are roasted in a conical stone oven, imparting a unique smokiness, and the spirit is distilled in a copper still, ensuring a refined and authentic expression of the spirit.
