Cecilia Rios Murrieta

La Niña del Mezcal
Mexico City
Writer and founder of La Niña del Mezcal, a company that promotes awareness of artisanal mezcal in order to preserve the traditional production processes and position it as a premium spirit in international markets. Her passion for mezcal led her to pursue certification as a Mezcalier, and later to establish one of the first blogs about Mezcal and the culture that surrounds it. After seven years of venturing into Oaxaca for the first time, her travels have taken her across the country in search of all things agave. Today, La Nina del Mezcal’s portfolio includes mezcals from different regions of Oaxaca, Bacanora from Sonora, and a Sotol from Chihuahua, as Cecilia continues to share her knowledge about the spirit through tastings and pairings, while creating alliances with other Mexican artisanal producers and chefs to promote Mexican cultural and gastronomic heritage.
