About us

MEZCAL

Our amazing history

Our Name Xija (dshi_já) is inspired in a word in mazateco, the language of one of our ancient cultures, that means “its eagle” or “sparrow hawk” referred to eagle symbolism as a group guide and protector; when they open their wings, they shelter the chicks with a far and straight vision.

Huautla de Jiménez, Oaxaca, Mexico, (2002)

We are working to keep alive the authentic mezcal, not just because it´s a fashion, but because we think it´s important to perpetuate the culture of mezcal as an ancient beverage, that is facing huge challenges with the growing industrialization process.
