About Gracias a Dios

In 2008, Gracias a Dios started as a speak easy mezcal bar in Querétaro, México. The bar sold mezcal produced by different Maestros Mezcaleros from various Oaxaca state regions. After two years of traveling Oaxaca, owners Pablo López, Enrique Jiménez and Xaime Niembro met Oscar Hernández in Matalán. They were blown away by Oscar’s mezcal. In fact, they believed that Oscar’s products were the best mezcal they had ever tasted – Thank GAD!
