MEET PEDRO JIMENEZ

Pedro Jiménez Gurría is a promoter of mezcal and mezcal culture; working in the dissemination and preservation of the culture of agave spirits for years.

"I'd bring back mezcals from my trips but I was surprised that many people here had never tried a good mezcal. So I started putting on tasting sessions in my house for friends and it began to take off," he explains. "People started asking, 'Why don't you open a mezcalería?' and I realized that would be the best way for us to have access to good mezcals. A few months later we opened Pare de Sufrir."

Pare de Sufrir, located in Guadalajara, Jalisco which features mezcals from all over Mexico, with an emphasis on Jalisco and Michoacán.

Pedro is also a visual artist. His work reflects a nostalgic and reflexive inner state that is represented with poetic images that speak of rituals as a way of representing human existence. In 2012 he directed Viva Mezcal, a documentary that explores the significance of the spirit, the stories of those who have distilled it for generations, and the growing array of challenges they face today. His work has been exhibited in different festivals around the world including Korea, Germany, France, United States, Canada, Peru, Chile, UK, Spain and Mexico.

Calle 23 Añejo

1122010_calle23anejoUnknown

Small Batch. Double Distilled in traditional port stills. Matured for 16 months in ex Bourbon oak casks to produce a smooth, clean and vibrant flavor with a hint of smoke. The color is a medium/dark amber, with a full body, lovely oak aromas marrying together with a rich touch of light vanilla and coffee. To the palate it is perfectly balanced. Great aperture of wood, surrounded by multiple taste evolutions in your mouth, with expressions of cracked coffee and tobacco among them.
