In 2007, Valentín Cortés along with his brother Rolando and son Asis, created Casa Cortés, a company that would bring a taste of their culture to the world. Together, they have assembled a community of families that not only craft beautiful and rare mezcals, but also believe in the preservation of culture through sustainability and honoring the sacred agave.
