David Rivera Herrera
(Mezcalero of January 2020 – Papalometl)
David lives with his parents and siblings in Santa María Ixcatlán, Oaxaca, located northwest of Oaxaca city in the Cañada region, close to the Mixteca border. A tight-knit family, they not only live together but also work together with cooperation and unity being the foundation of their personal and working relationships. Despite his being just 25 years old, David has become “the boss” with his parents and sisters while on the palenque where they continue the traditions of their ancestors crushing the agaves by hand and fermenting in cowhide. Carrying a “can-do” attitude with him both on and off the palenque, David is simultaneously young and bubbly, and also wise and insightful.
