Sons of Mezcal

Documentary Film

Ingrained into the culture of Oaxaca, mezcal is more than an intoxicating spirit. It is the sacred link that binds modern-day mezcaleros to their ancestors. Sons of Mezcal transports you into this living history, as it follows four families passing their traditions on to the next generation.

Beginning in 2018, Denver-based director, Stephan Werk, worked in association with Back Bar Project and Casa Cortés, to produce a documentary film featuring the families of mezcaleros that work within the Casa Cortés portfolio of mezcal brands: El Jolgorio, Nuestra Soledad, and Agave de Cortés.
