Mezcal Nacional 1937 commemorates the illumination of a nation through innovation and a determination to emerge from the shadows. In 1937, then Mexican President Lázaro Cárdenas created the Federal Electricity Commission (CFE) at a time when only a fraction of the country’s population had electricity. The objective was no less than to illuminate the night with electric innovation and the brightness of a multitude of incandescent bulbs. Mezcal Nacional 1937 recognizes the CFE through a truly electric mezcal.
Nacional 1937 is made with wild agave cirial in Santiago Matatlán, Oaxaca using strictly artisanal methods. Nacional 1937 is a complex flavor-forward electric mezcal to commemorate the creation of the noble goal of the Federal Electricity Commission.
