OUR PATH TO CARBON NEUTRALITY

We recognize our environmental responsibility of being in the Mezcal industry, therefore sustainable production processes and environmental responsibility initiatives are essential to the long term health of our industry, but most of all or to the well being of our planet.This is why we set off to implement the followig practices that will make us the first 100% sustainable mezcal distillery with zero carbon emissions.

Reforestation Campaign

Focusing on maintaining a healthy sustainable balance of agaves in our ecosystem we implemented our agresive campaign called one for one, in which we plant one agave for every bottle we produced, essentially planting 8 times the amount of agave we consume; we then relocate the agaves into the wild for them to grow in their original natural conditions.

Reforestation Campaing

The semi-cultivated agave greenhouse is an initiative we have been involved with for some time now, focusing on mantaining a healthy sustainable balance of agaves in our ecosystem by planting two agaves for every bottle we sell, essentially planting four times the amount of agave we consume. While we’ve been doing this in a small scale for a few years, we’re looking to replicate it on a larger scale by having our own land and vast space for more greenhouses.

Renewable Energy

  • Distillery: all the power used in our Vinata including the lights are powered by Solar Energy
  • Milling: mechanic mills to crush our agaves powered by Solar Energy
  • Distillation: no wood nor gas involved in our distillation process, it is done a 100% with solar energy.

Agave Byproducts

With the idea of using every part of the agave plant we have found usage for all its components. Developing new products and transforming the waste into eco friendly alternatives such as:

  • Agave bricks: used mainly for the construction of our new vinata.
  • Compost: we turn the leftovers of the agave spikes and fibers into compost for our greenhouse.
  • Water treatment: we treat our vinazas to take away the acidity and use it for irrigation.

Recycled Materials

  • Bottles: Made from Recycled Glass.
  • Labels: From Recycled Agave Paper. The agave spikes or leaves that are left over after the harvest are collected and trasformed into a patented paper, which we use to print our beautiful labels.
  • Boxes: Recycled Carton. All of our carton boxes are made of 100% recycled material; in addition to this, we opted to reduce or even eliminate the use of color inks replacing them with organic recyclable black ink.
