Félix Cruz Ángeles

(Mezcalero of July 2020 – Tobaziche)

Known locally as “el gato”, Félix is a first generation maestro (although he’ll tell you that he doesn’t deserve this title) from Santa Catarina Minas. After learning to make mezcal from various producers in Minas, Félix built his own palenque at the ripe age of 19. Despite being of a younger generation, Félix has conserved all the local traditions of crushing agave by hand and distilling with clay pots. He has a fierce entrepreneurial spirit and in 5 short years has begun to establish himself amongst the many renowned producers in Minas. Félix knows the value of his work and his confidence in the mezcal he produces reflects that value.
