Rancho de La Luna Studio was founded by Fred Drake and David Catching in 1993 in Joshua Tree, California
Rancho de la Luna mezcal is produced using 100% agave Angustifolia (maguey Espadin) in Santiago Matatlan, Oaxaca. The harvested plants are roasted in a conical stone over, milled by a tahona, naturally fermented in wooden vats, and double-distilled in copper pots. At one point in time the mezcal was produced by the brand Mezcal Los Javis but that relationship ended. As of 2020 it is being produced by mezcalero Carlos Mendes Blas of Cruz de Fuego and Cuentacuentos. This mezcal carries notes of fresh agave, clove, and roasted cashew.
