YOLA Mezcal (750ml)
YOLA Mezcal has reached perfect balance between authenticity and aesthetics. Created in collaboration between Yola Jiminez (of La Clandestina Mezcaleria fame), Lykke Li (Swedish songwriting sensation), and Gina Correll Aglietti (chef and stylist), YOLA counters the patriarchal system which is so ubiquitous in the Oaxaca. YOLA is run by women and bottled by women. We've seen time and again that no palenque succeeds without the aid of a strong women, and YOLA provides a place where the women of Oaxaca can have steady work. In addition, they happen to be making absolutely delicious mezcal that will satisfy even the most hardcore purist, but entice any novice to take another sip. YOLA Mezcal is all about balance. Balance with nature, balance of spirit, but most importantly balance of flavor. Expect a nose of ultra clean agave flavors tinged with vibrant smoke. Pink peppercorn, ripe green fruit, and a soothing billowing backbone. The palate is bright and refreshing, yet complex with earthen mineral flavors. The finish is long and filled with smoked fruits and peppery spice. It doesn't feel sweet at all but has a subtleness that feels special. Sip this indefinitely without remorse. Enjoy it now and forever more.
