We were blown away with Don Goyo’s Tepextate, but had just featured on in the club two months before.
Now we brought a tiny batch of that Tepextate to the US after our partner and photographer visited Don Goyo and then demanded we import this expression.
Search the Maguey Melate facebook page by “Don Goyo” and see all of our September 2019 content related to this producer.
Don Goyo is a highly respected, well known maestro within the Oaxaca mezcal community as well as in the United States. He’s been producing his own batches since 1997 and is a dependable mezcalero who prides himself on consistency. His palenque is located in San Baltazar Guelavila just a few hundred meters from where he was born. The nearby fruit that grows on his property gives his mezcal a unique flavor, and he’ll humbly tell you that you must ask his clients if you want to know what makes him unique as a mezcalero.
