Hermogenes Vasquez Garcia

(Mezcalero of August 2020 – Tepextate)

Hermogenes resides in Logoche, San Luis Amatlán, Oaxaca. A third generation maestro in his family, Hermogenes has been producing for 35 years now alongside his wife and partner, Paula. As a child, Hermogenes was attracted to the work of the campesinos around him and made it his goal to learn how to grow and tend to crops. He now proudly cultivates his own maguey, including Tepextate. His work has traveled to the US for many years now by brands like Neta (since 2012) and he is also part of the Maestros del Mezcal organization. 

Hermogenes is quite extroverted with a young spirit, making this conversationalist a fun producer to visit and interview. Although you have to pay close attention if you want to keep up, as he is known for his rapid speech and shortening of his words.
