WHY IS THE BRAND CALLED MADRE?
Madre is Mother Earth. As a spirit made within the earth, the name Madre is a tribute to that which provides us with the agave plants, the minerals in the earthen oven, and the wild yeast blowing in the wind.
WHAT DO THE MADRE LOGOS MEAN?
Madre offers a natural spirit crafted from the earth. A kind of homage to the mother earth that fosters such a unique gift, each label carries a distinct icon as a depiction of the spirit’s connection to the earth. A representation of balance between earth and its offerings, as well as, humans and our obligation as stewards of the land.
WHAT YEAR DID MADRE GET STARTED?
The first plastic bottles with the words Madre on them were first brought to the USA in 2014, and the first glass bottles with a printed Madre label were sold in 2018.
