History

Rancho El Tinieblo was founded in 1865 and given the name, meaning “the absence of light,” because of the heavy fog that covers the ranch every morning. It was also the name for mezcal being produced on the land long ago. Dormant for decades, Mezcal El Tinieblo was revived in 1986 when the family purchased the 9,000-acre agave-rich ranch and found the original stone wheel half-buried on the land. The discovery inspired us to use their own ancestral recipe to make small batches of mezcal to sell at the roadside cafe on the ranch. 

Since the 1980s, El Tinieblo has grown into an established brand that the family is very proud of. They have also been an integral part of mezcal conservation and regulation in our area. 

Mezcal El Tinieblo is an ultra premium handmade product. It is distilled by hand at Rancho El Tinieblo located on the Victoria-Matamoros Highway km. 106,Ejido La Misión, Jiménez, Tamaulipas, México y el mezcal teacher Don Baltazar Cruz.

Rancho El Tinieblo, the place where maguey grows and mezcal is produced, is based on sustainability and the aspiration to improve the economy of this Ejido. The ranch employs seven families from the Jiménez area, as well as a number of local merchants who help in the constant construction and maintenance of our palenque.

For generations, El Tinieblo has been at the forefront of mezcal culture, the conservation and quality processing of maguey plants. We are proud of our history and we strive so that our artisan mezcal can be enjoyed for centuries.
