Wahaka Mezcal


Mr. Santa-Cruz is a Founding Partner of Wahaka Mezcal, an artisanal, organic, small batch mezcal produced in San Dionisio Ocotepec, Oaxaca. This mezcal is handcrafted by Alberto "Beto" Morales, a fifth generation Zapotec master distiller, and has received numerous industry awards, medals and recognitions. After four years in the market, Wahaka Mezcal is now positioned as one of the leading brands in the category in both the United States and Mexico, with recent exports to Hong Kong and Australia. Wahaka Mezcal also takes great strides in giving back to the community of San Dionisio through its social programs and to the land through the sustainability and reforestation of wild agaves.
