As the story goes, our founder was dating a Brazilian woman from Belo Horizonte. Anytime he was out with her crew (they roll deep), she would say his name with a “Paquera” at the end. She wasn’t talking about getting married, she was referring to the magical grey area of “friends with benefits”.

Although their friendship has changed. She has inspired us to live a life of no labels and to seize every moment.


Our label represents a presence of mezcal on the breath, inducing a type of flirtation that commands notice. Paquera is produced by a group of Mezcaleros that put their life’s work into growing, harvesting, and bottling premium artisanal mezcal.
