About Mezcal El Silencio

Mezcal El Silencio revived the ancient art of mezcal, pioneering a unique approach and delivering the hand-crafted spirit to a new generation of creative drinkers and cultural innovators. Founded in Santa Monica in 2013, the company creates its mezcal in Oaxaca, Mexico, using the traditional process carried on by generations of Mezcaleros. Meticulously picked agaves are roasted, crushed, and double-distilled resulting in a full-bodied flavor.
El Silencio goes beyond the bottle, transforming the ordinary and disrupting the status quo.
