This espadin (A. Angustifolia) mezcal is the perfect pick for anyone starting to explore the world of quality mezcal or as a relatively inexpensive option for mezcal-based cocktails. It's very approachable and laden with sweet agave fruit. The smoke component is decidedly there, but not very intense, as one would expect with a well-made mezcal. A rich texture makes this a delightful sipper or stout component in a mezcal variant of the Last Word. Gold medal winner in Tequila Aficionado's 2021 Brands of Promise.

The exceptional San Bartolo brand was conceived by Daniel Martinez and his grandfather legendary mezcalero Valentin Martinez Lopez. Don Valentin has been making mezcal in the little village of San Bartolo Yautepec for more than 50 years, and his connections with mezcaleros in this remote corner of Oaxaca are deep. Their closest allies are in the neighboring village, Santa Maria Quiegolani. Here Maestro Enrique Diaz Cruz has been making mezcal for most of his nearly 70 years. The village is located at 7,000 feet, deep into the Sierra Sur, about 1.5 hours ...

YOLA Mezcal holds a 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 ubiquitous in Oaxaca. YOLA is run by women, bottled by women. We've seen time and again that no palenque succeeds without the contribution of strong women, and YOLA provides a place where the women of Oaxaca can have steady work. The result is absolutely delicious mezcal that wi...

One of the best values right now and a great example of the potential from this up and coming mezcal region. Cenizo is the local name for the Agave Durangesis, named for the state where this Agave grows abundantly. The name Cenizo, meaning ashy, comes from the disctintive gray color of the pencas. While many other regions used the term to describe local plants, it is only this varietal that can legally be called Cenizo today. The slow growing broad curved leaves of the Cenizo are as distinctive as its flavor and pinas can way many hundreds of kilos when ...

This exceptional Mezcal from the far flung Yaupetec sub-region of southwestern Oaxaca has one of the Mezcal world's most endearing stories. The amazing story begins with one man named Daniel Arellano Martinez. He was born and raised in San Bartolo and lived and breathed the Oaxacan Mezcal culture until he moved to New York City as a young man. Before the world had gone crazy for Mezcal, Daniel began working in restaurants as a server. It wasn't until one fateful night when a customer had questions about Mezcal that Danny made his great prowess and knowl...

The amazing Cortes family should be considered mezcal royalty. Located outside the village of Mengoli de Morelos, the kind, young son Ageo learned from his father Felipe and began distilling at 17. Third and fourth generation mezcaleros, they cultivate many varietals in the rich Miahuatlan soils, where it seems every plant grows faster and bigger than elsewhere in Oaxaca. The rolling hills, cut through by streams and rivers, provide the perfect environment for agave to thrive.

Back In Stock!
Rey Campero Espadin uses wild agave Espadin that is fermented in open air with wild yeasts. In true Rey Campero fashion, only the highest quality agave are used in production and the difference between wild agave Espadin instead of the more commonly used farmed Espadin makes a world of difference in this Mezcal. The Rey Campero Espadin is also aged before bottling, which adds complexity and depth. Considering the quality the pricing is absolutely astounding from this legendary distillery in Candelaria Yegole.

El Viejo is a special blend of Tobalá and Espadin from Unión Mezcal. The union between the producers, farmers, and importers is what this brand is all about, and the name is an homage to an elderly man who told them ensuring the future of mezcal would require a Unión. The brand helps support a replanting project for wild agaves through a careful nursery program and replanting the young plants in their natural habitat. Of the thousands of seeds they plant, only a handful will germinate. But still replanting them in the wild has a much higher success rate...

Wine Enthusiast: "This clear and light-bodied mezcal has a faintly smoky aroma and a mildly peppery flavor. A potent, alcoholic finish fades into black pepper. (KN)" (12/2010) K&L Notes: This entry level bottling called "Vida" allows for all of the purity and beauty that one extracts from Del Maguey's hand-crafted distillations at a more affordable price. The "Vida" is still produced 100% according to the 400-year-old local tradition of small-batch distillation and using nothing but the agave heart and water in the mezcal. Del Maguey was named "Distill...

Mezcal Legendario Domingo was founded in 2012 by Julian Saenger. Born and raised in Mexico, Julian has always had tremendous love and respect for the art of mezcal production, often finding ways to delve into production, marketing, brand launches and general support of the category throughout Mexico. When he finally found the opportunity to create a brand of his own through partnership with the Velasco family, he chose to center the brand design around a recurring feeling he experienced through his journey in mezcal: celebration.

Don Lucio and his sons represent the third and fourth generations of mezcaleros in the Morales Family. They produce a beautiful, easy drinking mezcal that is uniquely their own, yet appealing to all. Complex enough to be enjoyed on its own, but the slightly higher proof allows it to shine through in cocktails where most of the cocktail priced offers can easily get lost. Expect a nose of roasted bbq, tropical fruit, elote, citrus peel, and pine resin. On the palate savory leather, wild fruit, and flambéed banana. The finish is long and satisfying with a m...

The wonderful and affordable Metiche 49 is produced by Mezcalero Juan Manuel Perez Juarez in Charcas, San Luis Potosi. The old Hacienda Laguna Seca is relatively large and provides spirits primarily for regional brands.

The distillery hasn't changed it's production practices for more than a century, but this is not the big smokey mezcal some are expecting. The fla...

Emigdio Jarquín's palenque is based in Miahuatlan among the rolling hills two and a half hours due south of Oaxaca City. A specialist in the Espadín varietal of agave, he roasts the piñas for 5-7 days, which is on the longer side compared to other mezcaleros in the region. After crushing the agave with a large cement tahona, Emigdio distills in a 300L copper refrescador, similar to a copper alembic still, which essentially allows for two distillations in the same pass. Mezcal Vago has been on a decade-long tear and the brand has become a force among mezc...

Mezcal Vago is the business creation of Judah Kuper in conjunction with his in-laws in Oaxaca: a family of distillers that has been making mezcal for generations. Vago marks the first time their products have been available commercially, having previously been consumed solely by friends and family. The Espadin is the classic expression from Judah's father-in-law Aquilino García López. It's distilled from cultivated Espadin agave and showcases a clean and vibrant palate of citrus and smoke. Each batch is a little different from the last as Aquilino uses o...

Los Vecinos Del Campo is the new mezcal project from Sazerac and Carmen Villareal of Casa San Matias. As with any upstart mezcal brand our first instinct is to tread with caution. There's alot of opportunity to get things wrong when bringing a new mezcal to market, but we're extremely happy to note that our friends from New Orleans avoided all of them. Instead, we get an incredible affordable authentic artesenal mezcal from the village of San Miguel Ejutla in Oaxaca's central valley. Carmen's connections to the area go way back and she was able to identi...
