Félix Hernández Ruiz

(Mezcalero of October 2020 – Pulquero)

A third generation mezcalero from Santiago Matatlán, Félix returned to his family craft in the mid-90s after a 15 year hiatus as a pastry chef in the US. Since then, this soft-spoken, humble producer has come to sell his fresh pulque to many of the finest restaurants in Oaxaca, including El Destilado, as well as several lesser known cantinas in and beyond centro.
