Traditionally, the clay is molded by hand or on a potter’s wheel.
The pieces are then fired in an above-ground kiln, using wood fires that heat the objects to extremely high temperatures.
This process is the essence of artisanal work. No one copita will be exactly the same. Each is uniquely different and beautiful. Just the way we like it
Each piece of clay pottery we receive is a gift as they can only make so many pieces and the demand for their work is high.
For your information
Mezcal is an agave spirit that’s bolder, wilder, and more diverse than many other commercial industrialized spirits.
Mezcal has an earthy, smoky flavor, due to the distilling process.
We love the idea of a Mexican drink where the traditional methods are still respected. Mezcal is an industry that has not reached Tequila’s industrialization, for example. It is still done in the homes of people with their traditional methods, knowledge passed down from generation to generation.
Consuming mezcal in Mexico is a social act: the collective drinking of mezcal contributes to a sense of community and belonging.
