At the end of a dusty road, in a remote sliver of land off the coast of Oaxaca, you will find one of the most interesting collections of mezcal in the region. Hidden amongst an incredible collection of artfully-designed structures, Cobarde Bar in Punta Pajaros is a simple wonder, and a new destination for mezcal lovers and architect addicts alike. Madre spoke with Claudio Sodi, owner of Cobarde, about the bar, the creative culture being cultivated in this special beach location, and the beautiful Cobarde Copita, that Madre now offers in our General Store. (Editor's Note: As of Jan 2023, this product is no longer available for purchase.)
Pour a glass of mezcal, have a read, and transport yourself to Punta Pajaros.
In the last years, we have been developing dwellings that try to get a sense of this new way of traveling and enjoying time OFF the internet and INTO nature. We are currently working with on-the-rise young architecture firms to analyze and design houses that create an experience, houses travellers can feel their own and enjoy to the fullest. We have also developed site specific projects such as the Sauna EL PAPELILLO that the artist duo from Mexico City TEZONTLE created for the area. We’ve been inviting artists and architects with the spirit of freedom and creation.

Cobarde is a small bar in the Punta Pajaros area near Puerto Escondido that specializes in weird, small batches of mezcal that Maestros Mezcaleros create for us as a special gift. Almost all of our mezcals have a special story behind them; a quinciañera party special reserve, a mezcal batch hidden (and rescued) from a narco town, etc. We source our mezcal from all over the country, Oaxaca mainly, but batches we have had come from many other states of Mexico, including Durango, Guerrero, Puebla, etc.
