Reasons to Invest

GROWTH POTENTIAL: The global mezcal market is forecasted to grow at a CAGR of 14.5% until 2027, when it’s projected to reach $818 million.
SALES STRENGTH: Despite the pandemic, Acre Mezcal sold approximately $100,000 (Mex & US) after a soft launch in the US in 2020.
QUALITY: Each of Acre Mezcal’s four varietals were awarded medals at the 2020 San Francisco Spirits Competition, the most prestigious in the world.

Overview


From a Resort Amenity to a Booming Brand

What started as a nice amenity for guests at the award-winning boutique hotel Acre Resort in San Jose del Cabo, Mexico has quickly turned into a growing brand gaining industry recognition and customer fanfare across the U.S. In just less than a year (2020), amidst a global pandemic, the emerging spirit brand has managed to generate roughly $100,000 in sales, demonstrating both the brand’s likability, as well as the market’s hunger for quality mezcal.

Originally inspired by the grounded, natural beauty of the Cabo resort, the Acre Mezcal brand captures the same Mexican authenticity, spiritual connection to nature and appreciation for life that the property evokes. The brand owners set out to source the best small-batch Mezcaleros, who for generations have been sustainably perfecting their craft throughout the most rural and beautiful regions of Mexico. 

The result is a collection of four varietals (Espadín, Cenizo, Tobalá, Tepextate) showcasing the versatility and the beauty of the agave plant handcrafted in Oaxaca and Durango, Mexico. Every bottle of Acre Mezcal is an uncompromising reflection of the creators’ heritage and the land from which they came.

The Problem


Mezcal Brands That Don’t Respect Roots

The explosion in popularity of mezcal has been great for the brands in the category, however the very plant needed to produce Mezcal is potentially becoming endangered by illegal harvesting

Unfortunately, more and more unethical brands continue to get into the space to capture the “coolness” of a mezcal brand versus a dedication to the product and the people whose livelihoods have depended on it for generations.

The Solution


Centering Sustainability, Honoring Tradition

Acre Mezcal exclusively works with small-batch, multi-generational family Mezcaleros (makers of mezcal) in Mexico who focus on sustainability and the heritage of the craft above all else.

GIF

We currently work with two families who for generations have been sustainably perfecting their crafts throughout the most rural and beautiful places in Mexico, pouring their hearts and souls into their mezcals.

The Market


Premium Spirits go Mainstream

Consumers’ taste buds have increasingly become more sophisticated as the drinking public have been leaving behind low- and medium-grade spirits in favor of high-end, premium products  (source) . . . particularly when it comes to Mezcal! (source).

As of 2018, the global Mezcal market was worth $277mm and is expected to continue to grow significantly over the next 10 years at a CAGR of 14.5% reaching $818mm by 2027. (source).

Our Traction


Early Recognition, Long-term Dedication

The brand has already generated approximately $100,000 in combined sales in the US and Mexico since the soft US launch in 2020, despite the challenges created by the COVID-19 pandemic. Possibly even more impressive than the sales figures themselves is the recognition received by the top spirits competition in the world. At the 2020 San Francisco World Spirits Competition, Acre Mezcal received the highest honor of a Double Gold medal and three Silver medals across all four products.

In addition to the formal competition, renown spirits expert Anthony Dias Blue awarded Acre Mezcal a 95 / 100 in the June edition of Tasting Panel magazine, the highest rating for any mezcal brand (source).

The Business Model


Sales, Marketing & Distribution

Direct-To-Consumer:

In an effort to streamline the process, we sell our portfolio of mezcals, which includes four varietals ranging from $50-$140 per bottle, direct to our customers via our website. The DTC route allows the brand to maximize profit and provides a memorable brand experience to the customer.

Distribution:

Each U.S State has its own regulations and requires a local distribution partner to bring the product to market. Currently, we use Park Street Imports in California, which allows us to sell to restaurants, bars and liquor stores throughout the state. Beginning in early 2021, we will begin distributing in Nevada through West Coast Beverages allowing us to have a presence in Las Vegas, one of the country’s top liquor markets. As we raise money and grow out the sales team, we will establish additional distribution partners in other key markets like Miami, Austin, New York and more.

Sales:

Like any product, it needs to be sold. As we expand into new markets, a sales team will be built covering each area. In addition to dedicated salespeople working to place Acre Mezcal into the top restaurants, bars and liquor stores, we will continue to use our network of brand ambassadors to support the sales team’s efforts.

GIF

PR & Marketing:

Acre Mezcal employs a national PR & Marketing team tasked with building brand awareness among target consumers leading to increased demand and revenue. In addition to traditional PR, Acre Mezcal will continue to utilize social media platforms to amplify our messaging and further drive consumer demand. With the funds raised, we will be able to execute effective activations in key markets to educate and entice consumers, which may include tastings, sponsored events, influencer marketing and in-store promotions.

How We Are Different


From the Earth, for the Earth: Sourcing Mezcal from Those who Know and Respect it Best

We currently work with two amazing mezcaleros:

The Burciaga Family:

The wild Cenizo plant, which grows in abundance throughout the Durango region, has sustained the Burciaga family for decades, yet it really is their stringent production methods that has led to their continued success and now, Acre’s award-winning Cenizo Mezcal.

 

Sustainability: Jorge repurposes the waste of his mezcal production into adobe bricks that he donates to the local town. Our labels are also made of repurposed agave fibers.

The Cruz Family:

Honorato Cruz and his family hail from the 500-person indigenous Zapotec village of Santa Ana del Rio, Oaxaca where nearly every member of this humble town has worked with agave for decades, building an encyclopedic knowledge of mezcal production passed down through the generations. The Cruzes craft their mezcal using only traditional methods and the highest quality agave—including the two rare species Tobalá and Tepeztate, which are used to make Acre’s high-end sipping mezcals.

 

Sustainability: To ensure the sustainability of the rarer Tobalá and Tepeztate agave plants, Honorato allows at least 50% of the plants to reach full maturity in order to be pollinated by the local bat population. This unorthodox process fosters biodiversity and ensures a future abundance of the plant.

At Acre Mezcal, we recognize that it wouldn’t be possible to make this wanderlust- and connection-inspiring spirit without the generosity of the earth—which is why we’re invested in not only the livelihood of our brand, but also that of our mezcaleros, their communities and the land on which they live.

The Vision


Creating a Connected Experience for Acre Mezcal Customers

Our customers are our greatest asset. We have an aggressive growth plan over the next three years to become a truly national brand utilizing and inspiring our core customer base through a dedicated network of brand ambassadors in each market.

Acre Mezcal will become more than just another spirit brand as it morphs into a true lifestyle brand - merchandise, festivals, travel, etc. This also includes the expansion of Acre Baja resort into the U.S., where we would create a branded Acre Mezcal lounge with curated experiences at the retail level.

OUR LEADERSHIP


Experienced Entrepreneurs with a Thirst for Life . . .and Success!

Two of the brand’s founders are the original creators of the stunning Acre Baja Resort, where Acre Mezcal was conceived. What started as an idea between friends was built into an award-winning hotel and restaurant with creative vision, dedication, and grit. They cleverly used the resort to initially introduce Acre Mezcal to an A-list resort crowd before expanding it to the U.S. mainstream. It is this same ingenuity that will carry the brand forward.

We all have a wide variety of backgrounds from finance to hospitality. None of us are industry insiders. We don’t play by the traditional rules. We think outside the box and pull from an array of adventures and experiences to chart the best course.

Why Invest


Amplify Popularity 

The brand’s alliance with a popular Cabo resort has provided a baseline built-in audience. The resort’s Instagram alone has 46k followers, which is often leveraged on behalf of the Mezcal. The resort hosts Mezcal tastings, as well as offers Acre Mezcal at every on-property wedding and event. With your investment, we hope to take the popularity of the resort and the brand and amplify it across the US. We believe the brand’s potential growth can already be seen by the revenue generated in 2020 during a pandemic. Together, we aim to take that Cabo experience and expand it to every cocktail glass in the U.S.

A responsible enterprise, we are invested in supporting the mezcaleros and land that make our product possible. With Acre Mezcal’s spirit of exploration and adventure, we believe we can do anything.

$500k and 2021 YTD Update

20 days ago

We're incredibly proud to announce that we've raised over $500k through StartEngine and momentum is strong! Approximately a month ago I shared a comprehensive update of our efforts this year and I think it would be wise to share with our prospective shareholders as well. Please read below on all the happenings with Acre Mezcal this year!


To Our Shareholders,

Very exciting times at Acre Mezcal! There has been so much happening with the brand, thanks in no small part to your investment. This is our first quarterly business update and it’s going to be quite comprehensive as there’s lots to talk about. I would anticipate that future update letters won’t be quite as long, but I would like to get everyone up to speed on what we’ve been working on.

As it stands we’re currently ramping our inventory up and preparing for a fresh push into LA, Vegas, Cabo and Australia. We have distribution partners in place everywhere but Los Angeles and are diligently working on filling that gap. To help our distribution succeed, we now firmly have in place our marketing and sales teams. They are preparing us for a strong entrance or re-entrance into our various markets.

Fundraising

As of today we’ve raised ~$385,000 for this project, with incremental increases every day and many months left until our raise is closed. We’re seeing an increase in the momentum of our raise and our partners at StartEngine have showed us that, historically, momentum really tends to pick up after approximately $500k raised. Our goal is still to raise the full targeted amount and we are confident we can achieve that goal, though we are prepared and budgeting for success under all scenarios. To the extent anyone feels comfortable sharing this opportunity with their friends and colleagues, we’d love the support! Please feel free to put me in touch with any potential future investors.

Q1 Update & Strategy

At long last the world (and particularly our home market of Los Angeles) is coming back to life! Restrictions on our restaurant partners seem to be lifting by the day and this is going to be enormously beneficial to us throughout the summer. As it stands, Q1 revenue was ~$33k, approximately flat with the average across 2020. Bear in mind that Q1 is seasonally the weakest quarter for liquor sales across the industry and for much of this time the market in LA was effectively shut down. With the city opening back up, orders from new distributors and our new sales staff we’re expecting dramatically better results in the quarters to come.

In the portfolio, we are making a strategic decision to reposition our double gold-winning Cenizo varietal as our main emphasis to on-premise accounts. It’s been a fan favorite of our customers, an interesting alternative to the typical espadín most restaurants will carry on their cocktail menu, and our producer has the ability to scale to many thousands of liters per month with us.

In the near term, our primary goal is to drive sales volume through cocktail menu placements and establish ourselves further around key accounts in our main markets. Cocktail menus are where customers and bartenders alike will really get to know our product, driving brand awareness and purchases in all other formats.

Our second primary goal is to find the right distribution partner for California. We want to be selective and patient as this is amongst the most important decisions our company will ever make and we will need a partner that shares our priorities and has the necessary market reach.

New Hire – West Coast Market Manager & Cabo Sales Representative

As we recently announced on StartEngine, we’re thrilled to say that we’ve brought on our first full-time market manager! Lauren Sanchez just started with us last week after 5+ years at The Back Bar Project and over a decade of industry experience. Her formal title is West Coast Market Manager and her primary responsibilities are going to include driving on and off-premise sales activities in LA, Vegas and any other West Coast markets we may enter, distributor management, and representing the brand at various trade and consumer events. Having now seen her in action first hand, I’m feeling extremely confident in her ability to expand our case volume and market reach dramatically.

Additionally, we’ve recently expanded the role of our wonderful Acre Resort mezcal expert, Jose Orozco. Some of you who have visited the resort may have met Jose via a free mezcal tasting while in Cabo. In addition to his nightly responsibilities at the hotel, Jose is going to be spending some extra time working with our distributor, Baja Wines, to expand our presence around major accounts in Los Cabos.

Packaging

Over the last few months we have taken a hard look at all elements of our packaging and our overall cost of production. We’re making some key changes that we believe will both simultaneously improve our design and our margins for the long term. We’re going to have photos for everyone in a few weeks, but the key changes include:

- A more colorful, but still simple and refined label. With the current design we’ve realized that many customers don’t have the knowledge base to understand the differences between our 4 SKUs with all very similar labels. Color differentiation between the SKUs is going to make this easier and help us stand out more on a shelf or bar

- The new labels will have some of the same handwritten elements as well as fun product descriptions to give our consumers a fuller idea of what they’re drinking and tasting notes they can expect to experience

- Elimination of the string wrapping around the bottle. In speaking with Jorge, who produces our cenizo and packages all of our mezcals, the labor cost of applying the string is simply too high and with our more colorful labels, the white string doesn’t make quite the same impact on the eye. The money we’re saving here will be able to be funneled back into our marketing of the product.

- New (but still sustainable) label paper. As much as we love our agave fiber paper, we’ve realized that it brings with it serious problems around scalability, cost and quality control. We’re working diligently on a new sustainable paper source that we can use in the long term

Marketing

We can’t wait to show you everything we’re working on here! Our marketing budget is largely going to focus on:

- In person & digital events

- Sales support

- Branded merchandise

- Promotions and giveaways in relation to the Acre Resort partnership

- Photo/video shoots for new content

Ultimately, we’re really waiting on the final packaging to come in to start rolling out many of these initiatives, but we’re very excited to finally have a real marketing budget to work with and will spend it wisely.

Perks

For those eligible for masks ($500+), totes ($1,000+), and copitas ($2,500+), we are going to wait until the fundraising is closed to begin shipping your goodies as we don’t know what quantities we will need as of yet.

For those eligible for bottles ($5,000+), please email me with your name and preferred delivery address. Depending on what state you live in, either I or our DTC fulfillment partner will be shipping the bottles. Please send an address where you or someone 21+ can personally sign for the package.

For ALL INVESTORS! – Your code to purchase bottles at https://www.acremezcal.com/shop-mezcal is [you'll have to invest to find out!]. 15% off of our product for life!

In Conclusion

Consider Q1 the calm before the storm. Our journey is just beginning and we’re excited to be starting upon the high growth phase of our business. As we analyze the market, we’re feeling great about Acre Mezcal’s opportunity within the overall mezcal market and believe our truly high quality and differentiated product can compete with and succeed against anything else out there. Our team is passionate and committed to sharing our message with the world. And most importantly, we now have all of you as committed brand ambassadors! Please continue to spread the word on our project, word of mouth really does make a huge difference in this industry.

Thank you again for all of the support and please feel free to email me with any comments, suggestions or questions.

Warmest Regards,

Jordan Haddad

New West Coast Market Manager

2 months ago

Hola Acre Mezcal fans and Investors,

We have made our first key hire since kicking off the fundraising process and are excited to announce that our new West Coast Market Manager, Lauren Sanchez, has officially joined the Acre Mezcal team! Lauren brings with her over a decade of craft sprits experience from Momentum Worldwide and more recently the Back Bar Project, where she worked intimately with four separate mezcal brands. She has a deep and passionate knowledge of all things agave spirits and has excellent relationships with both large purchasing accounts and distributor networks.

We anticipate that her addition is going to take this brand to the next level from a volume perspective and look forward celebrating everything that she will accomplish! 

As a fun aside, on her first date with her now husband, they wound up late night sipping some Acre Mezcal that he picked while up on vacation! It was really meant to be.

Saludos,

Jordan

Acre Mezcal Down Under!

5 months ago

Excellent news this week. We're happy to announce that our global efforts are expanding and we will soon be signing an agreement to launch Acre Mezcal in Australia! Our distribution partner is MIXTE Drinks, who only works with award winning products such as ours. We believe this will be a long and successful partnership due to MIXTE Drinks' excellent portfolio, strong selling capabilities throughout the country, and deep industry relationships in the marketplace.

The Australian craft market has experienced excellent growth in recent years and hasn't been nearly as impacted by the pandemic as most other major markets.

  • Australia's spirit market forecast 5yr growth at +3%

  • Australian craft spirits growing at +110%

  • Online Liquor sales growing at +80%

When established brands innovate and market well, they lead significant growth and create value for both the brand and the retailer. We anticipate our new product to land and begin selling within 3 months.

We've got several other exciting opportunities in the works that we hope to be able to share with you soon! Despite the ongoing pandemic-related difficulties, we remain extremely optimistic about our long-term position in the marketplace. Please feel free to contact us with any questions or opportunities.


Saludos,

Great News on the Taxation of Craft Spirits

5 months ago

Hello Everyone! 

 

Happy new year to all and thank you so much for your continued support of Acre Mezcal. We’re thrilled with the reception thus far and the confidence investors have shown in our prospects of raising our maximum million dollar amount. There has been good news in the craft spirits industry over the last week. On December 27th the Craft Beverage Modernization and Tax Reform Act (CBMTRA) was signed into effect, giving our industry permanent relief on excise taxes and narrowly avoiding what would have been a 400% tax increase in 2021. If you would like more information, I encourage you to read the full article here:
