Mr. Ernesto Chagoya was the rst man of this family story dedicate in the elaboration of a good mezcal.
Since 1917 .Mr Ernesto, as a producer of Oaxaca. During his rst stage as a producer, he got married with
Mrs Teresa Hernández , they had ve children. The oldest died in his early age, the rest of them: María del Carmen Chagoya Hdz,Porrio Chagoya Hdz, Salomón Chagoya Hdz, and Ernestina Chagoya Hdz. Were involved in the production and comercialization of the mezcal elaborated by their father.
When Mr. Ernesto died they continued the mezcal activity independently.

Into the 50’s Mrs. Carmen Chagoya and her husband, Mr Noé Hdz Amador, created their own factory of
mezcal . Later the factory was closed because Mr. Noé Hdz decided to change his activities. Since then, Mrs Carmen Chagoya took care of her father until he died in 1970.

In the latest years , Mrs. Ernestina Chagoya, having the mezcal heritage in her veins, has put a special eort in the harvest of the agave espadin ( agave Angustifolia How ) the most used agave in the region of Tlacolula for producing the mezcal.
