Our agave Journey
First and foremost, we are native Angelenos and lifelong friends. In 2017, deep in the Oaxacan highlands amidst towering agave plants, we were presented with an opportunity: To bring the deeply-rooted culture in ancient Mexican traditions back home to California and honor the indigenous practices of master mezcaleros by creating symbiotic partnerships with the families and communities who have produced agave spirits for generations.
Bad Hombre Importing sources ethically produced agave spirits for both local and high-end retailers.
We work exclusively with suppliers committed to providing fair living wages and sustainable agave harvesting. Our team believes in an education-first approach to sales, so their unique stories and spirits are center stage. Our partners thrive by bringing these ancient spirits to life for their conscious consumers.
Bad Hombre Importing works to empower producers with control and scalability by integrating the gusto historico and traditional mezcal production practices with a knowledgable approach to marketing and distribution in one streamlined solution.
Each of our product offerings respects the methods, magueyes, and volumes historically seen in its respective region. We believe that education is the key to maintaining the integrity and sustainability of traditional mezcal production and biodiversity of agave throughout Mexico.
Enjoy with respect. A tu salud!
