Mezcalero: Margarito López Florez

Agave: Cupreata

Rayo Seco Cupreata is made with wild harvested Agave cupreata in Nicolás Bravo, Guerrero. Maestro Vinatero Margarito López Flores cooks the agave in a conical earthen oven, mashes the agave by hand with an axe and wooden mallet, ferments with wild yeast in river water, and double distills in an ancestral filipino still made of clay and Ayacahuite, with a copper condenser.

Rayo Seco Destilados is a brand featuring some of the finest producers in Guerrero, Mexico and beyond. They represent over five generations and they provide an introduction to the traditions of Guerrero to consumers across the globe. As of 2021, the state of Guerrero was still relatively untouched by many importers due to the decades-long unrest throughout much of the state. This is beginning to change as brands like Rayo Seco are at the forefront of exporting craft spirits from the region. Rayo Seco is also working with producers in other regions of Mexico.
