Santo Diablo Mezcal
The Irresistible Mezcal
Los Angeles, California, US
Santo Diablo Mezcal has been created to capitalize on a boom sector of the beverage market currently full of many small unmemorable products by producing one sexy, household, easily recognizable and identifiable brand of Mezcal.
Comparing with growth trends in the Tequila Industry, Mezcal is on its way to surpassing its cousin in the 100% agave, premium categories. As a pioneer in the industry, Santo Diablo has the potential to effectively carve-out a recognizable identity and loyal following, thus commanding market dominance and increased security.

I believe the time has come for mezcal to take its rightful place as one of the leading alcohol categories. Santo Diablo is becoming one of the leading brands and the assembled team has what it takes to make it happen. I’m excited to use my experience in the beverage industry to guide them on their journey.
I am thankful for many things including your mezcal, which I am sipping right now! My initial impression is quite favorable. I will be back with more but wanted to say thanks and tell you that I think you have a very good product.
