Agua Del Sol Ultramundo Lamparillo Mezcal
  • Agua Del Sol Ultramundo Lamparillo Mezcal

    • Ultramundo Mezcal is an agroforestry project. They’re attempting to foster a balanced relationship with nature through craft spirits, specifically artisanal mezcal, using the agaves from their 24,000-acre ranch in Mapimí, Durango. They leave at least 20% of the agaves that reach maturity to do what they do naturally: go to seed and regenerate their population.
