Nucano Mezcal, a 100% Oaxacan owned and operated brand, is a tribute to the rich traditions and culture of Oaxaca. Born from the passion of two young Oaxaqueños, Nucano is an artisanal mezcal hailing from the region of San Dionisio Ocotepec. The brand's name, Nucano, meaning 'Great Fire,' is inspired by a brave Mixtec warrior who sought peace between the Mixtec and Zapotec peoples. Nucano is committed to preserving the traditional methods of mezcal production, offering a range of mezcals, each with unique flavor profiles. Their Joven mezcal, made from 100% Espadin agave, won the Silver Medal in the National Contest of Mezcals in 2016, showcasing its earthy and firewood notes. Nucano's mission is to share a piece of Oaxaca with the world, one sip at a time.
