The History

Years ago, natives of this “Land of Colors” in Nahuatil created a drink made with pomegranate juice and a distilled spirit known as “Ponche de Granada”. The creators of La Pinta drew on their fondness for the traditional pomegranate punch and developed an ultra-premium liqueur which is truly authentic to Mexico. By using Mexico’s pride spirit, tequila, blended with rich and exotic pomegranate flavors, La Pinta is in a category of its own

The name “La Pinta” is rich in history and is most often associated with the fastest of the three ships used by Christopher Columbus in his first transatlantic voyage. Both the ship La Pinta and the first pomegranate fruits were brought to México from Spain hundreds of years ago. This lends even more depth to the heritage of this magnificent Mexican spirit.

wahakamezcal

Product Spotlight: Wahaka Espadin Joven Mezcal

 

Wahaka Mezcal is an artisanal mezcal produced by 5th generation mezcaleros from San Dionisio Ocotepec, Oaxaca, Mexico. Certified USDA organic, Wahaka comes in five unique varieties: Joven Espadin and Reposado con Gusano (with our estate farmed agave, Joven Tobalá (wild agave from the highlands), Joven Madre-Cuishe™ (wild from the lowlands) and our signature Joven Ensamble (a blend of all our agaves). Wahaka products are 100% agave, 100% organic and 100% authentic. Always. Wahaka Mezcal produces its mezcales using sustainable harvesting techniques and traditional production procedures. The story of Mezcal, like all knowledge, is a personal journey. Salud! “El respeto al derecho ajeno es la paz.” – Don Benito Juarez (loosely translates as: “Respect for each others’ rights is the basis for peace.”)

 

 

wahakamezcalespadin

Mezcal is one of the few distilled spirits where the drinker can actually taste the source, in this case, the agave plant. As some have described it, “young mezcal is jagged and primeval, ethereal and alluring, its flavor defined by elemental forces of fire and earth”. Our young mezcal series – Joven Espadin – delivers fantastically what pure, artisanal mezcal should be all about. The aroma wakes up your senses. Upon tasting it, you are immediately transported to Maestro Alberto’s palenque in San Dionisio, Oaxaca, which he describes as “a place of respect and harmony, where no arguments or even bad words can be uttered”. You can then taste the smokiness of the pit and the sweetness of the cooked piñas, and perceive the lengthy, caring process required to ferment, distill and then rectify the mezcal. Our Joven Espadin series is maestro Alberto’s specialty, and one we have chosen to present at 38% so that everyone can enjoy sipping it but also use for mixed drinks.

 

Joven Espadin is our more readily-available spirit. It is easier to produce, so Wahaka can deliver more spirits in this variation. Many mezcal cocktails are made with the Joven Espadin, and mescal enthusiasts can find the Joven Espadin in their favorite watering hole.

 

 

 

Their Story
The Zapotec highlands are known for their rich cultural mosaic, as well as for their unrivaled biodiversity. Of all the states of Mexico, Oaxaca has the greatest variety of agave, and, naturally, the largest production of mezcal. This spirit, with a centuries-old history, has become an integral part of special occasions, as well as everyday life. Wahaka is crafted in San Dionisio Ocotepec (located in the Central Valleys of Oaxaca in the District of Tlacolula, 16º48´ N 96º24´ W, 1,670 meters above sea level). Founded in 1610, this village has sat at the epicenter of mezcal country throughout the spirit’s existence. Within the village of San Dionisio, the Morales family has perfected the art of mezcal creation over generations. Today, young maestro Alberto is the principal author of our label, managing the family’s five stills and overseeing the process from harvest to market.

Packaging Spotlight: Lactica Dairy

 

Designed by
Open Studio by K
Monterrey, Mexico

 

Brief
“Lactica” is a brand of dairy products that use vacuum technology that seals the package, ensuring the product maintains its flavor and freshness.

The client wanted a brand that would appeal to a high market type, with a unique and original design that was able to stand out from the high competition that exists in this type of products.

The naming came from the nature of the product, directly connected to the characteristics of the Milky Way, which became our guiding concept. This is clearly reflected in the logo which was inspired by a spot of milk on a black background reminiscent of space.

The natural form of the packages also engages the general theme, since this is the type of packaging used by NASA to send food in space missions.

To seal the whole spatial concept, it was decided to place the nutritional information for each product in an info-graphic that reflects different constellations, leading consumers to a brand experience that exists outside the conventional
