We distill Mexico
We are danzantes – messengers of the spirit of Mexico. We believe in the power of our people and our dancing to reconnect with our roots. We share our culture and the traditions that make us proud and respectful advocates for our work and our service.
We are honored to be part of Grupo Los Danzantes. Our philosophy is about staying true to our values, respecting the earth and its fruits, as well as the producers who work with us, and all those involved in the processes necessary to bring the highest quality ingredients to your table. To make this possible, we ensure that the lion’s share of our consumables come from Mexican fields.
We head a number of companies that share our aim to rethink and extol Mexico’s culinary and cultural wealth through bringing together a wide variety of Mexican products and concepts. These alliances include our Mexican restaurants, artisanal mezcal production, the communities we work with, and our consideration for the environment. Our vision is to inspire a deeper affinity with Mexico and to give that appreciation back to Mexicans.
Since 2007, Los Danzantes has cultivated two chinampas (small, rectangular plots of cultivated land in the shallow lakebeds of the Valley of Mexico) in Xochimilco, where chinampero Pedro Méndez and his family maintain traditional cultivating techniques. This is where we get our Italian lettuce and sangria, rainbow chard, cilantro flowers, borage and pansies, and spinach, amaranth, beet, coriander and radish sprouts. Produce varies depending on the season.
Commitment towards the environment
As part of our responsibility with the environment, we are pioneers of the Anti-Straw Movement in México, as well, our terraces are 100% smoke free and we promote Meatless Monday (from Human Society) reducing the impact that meat consumption generates.
