Gracias a Dios is a line of Mexican spirits made from maguey. Their mezcales and gin pay tribute to the flavors of Mexico.
The maguey or agave is a unique plant.
There are approximately 250 species of maguey and 190 are endemic to Mexico. The wide variety of agaves that exist multiplies the possibilities of spirits that can be created. In the same way as grapes to wine, the variety of agave and its conditions of care, influence the final organoleptic properties of the spirit.
