Paulina Tamayo, Founder

A Little Curiosa

Paulina Tamayo, the owner of Curiosa, has a passion for culture, altruism, and experience. Because of her curious nature and admiration for Hispanic heritage, she enjoys exploring and learning as much as she can about Mexican culture.

As a little girl, Paulina’s parents commented on how her curiosity drove her to learn more. When she would find something that interested her she would research as much as she could about the subject. She loved to learn and had to know everything about everything. So, it’s no surprise why her parents nicknamed her Curiosa.

Discovering Fine Mexican Spirits

Paulina travels throughout the streets of Mexico to build a closer connection with her ancestors. During these expeditions, she discovers artisanal Agave distillates, spends time with the local Maestros and Maestras, and learns about the process behind their craft. It’s the unique process and history of the Mezcalero or Mezcalera that drives her enthusiasm to learn more.

It’s the unique process and history of the Mezcalero or Mezcalera that drives her enthusiasm to learn more. This is why she launched her shop, Curiosa.

Her goal is to enrich others about the history of Mexican culture and hopes that the stories are shared with friends while enjoying hand-selected drinkable art.

Bringing Mezcal to the U.S.

Up until now, these spirits were not available for purchase outside of Mexico. That is why Paulina became a Licensed Liquor Importer and started Curiosa. Curiosa has worked tirelessly to make these unique alcoholic beverage products available so that others around the world can enjoy them. That’s what makes these distillates so special. They are unique items of Mexican culture that you will be the first to experience! Curiosa imports, sells, and distributes these beverages, bringing some exclusive tastes of Mexico to your glass.

“Discovering unique Agave distillates, while exploring the streets of Mexico, is my passion. I really enjoy spending time to meet Maestros and Maestras, and learning about their ancestral process. They are truly inspiring.”
