Pescador de Sueños Mezcal is a project of Destileria Santa Sabia that presents unique collections of select mezcal batches aimed at rescuing the mysticism and folklore of this ancient Mexican tradition. The mystical aspect of the brand appears in the name which means "the fisherman of dreams." Pescador de Sueños is focused on single batch productions from independent and well-regarded master distillers. In order to preserve flavors and properties that the agaves have developed throughout their life, once distilled, each batch is matured in glass at least a year inside rooms with temperature and controlled light.

Pescador de Sueños Cuishe is made by master mezcalero Leoncio Santiago Hernandez in Santiago Matatlan, Oaxaca.
At 1700 meters above sea level, Santiago Matatlan is known around the world to be the capital of mezcal. This is where Leoncio and his wife are raising four children and making their livelihood from traditional mezcal production. Leoncio’s care for every last detail in the production process, and the warmth from him and his family is felt from the moment one steps into his palenque, where it’s common to hear his native zapoteco spoken. He distills in copper alembic stills.
