Yuu Baal Jabali Artisanal Mezcal (750ml) (Elsewhere $180) (Elsewhere $180)
Top Pick!
Yuu Baal has been critical in the development of American's appreciation of Mezcal. The 100% Mexican-owned company is a group of producers from 3 different villages known for exceptional Mezcal production. The Jabali Mezcal, a beautiful example of this wild variety, comes from an exceedingly rare agave that is also difficult to ferment and distill. Made in the traditional artisanal method, these ripe, wild agaves are roasted in underground ovens before being milled by hand with wooden mallets. This labor-intensive milling helps bring out the most intense...

Guillermo Erickson Sauza is a fifth generation tequila maker who hand-crafts beautiful, artisanal tequila at his century-old estate. His tartabuelo (great-great-grandfather), Don Cenobio was the first person to export tequila to the US, way back in the 1860s, starting his own brand in the 1870s. That tequila (Sauza) was passed down the generations before being sold by Guillermo's grandfather in 1976. Tequila Fortaleza is a return to his roots and to the traditional methods, including the use of a stone mill called a Tahona to crush the agave, a small, c...

90 points Wine Enthusiast: "Close your eyes and you might think that’s tomato juice in the glass. It’s clear, but the fragrance is zesty, lemony and yes, fresh tomato-like. On the palate, dried oregano and green pepper come forward, plus a trace of tomato savoriness, and it finishes light, with lively lemon zest. It’s mouthwatering, with moderate alcohol feel. (KN)" (04/2014) K&L Notes: This is such great tequila that it is well worth spending the extra dough. All the bright agave floral notes jump out at you on the nose, and the palate packs a strong ...

The Guerrero region has only been minimally explored by the mezcal loving public. For those in the know, no name in the region resonates more than Tomas Gutierrez of Sanzekan fame. If you're an agave nerd then you know exactly what we're talking about. If not, Sanzekan is a small cooperative of mezcal producers in and around the communities of Chilapa de Alvarez. They're renowned for some of the highest quality production anywhere in Mexico, but the brand is not sold outside of Mexico. Now for the first time ever, Mal Bien has managed to secure stocks fr...

Yuu Baal Tobala Artisanal Mezcal (750ml) (Elsewhere $128) (Elsewhere $128)
Top Pick!
Yuu Baal's selection of wild agave expressions is one of the best we've ever tasted (meaning the agave species must be foraged and found and cannot be cultivated or farmed). Tobala is usually the ultimate test of a Oaxacan distiller's craft, and in this case the Yuu Baal passes with flying colors. There are textbook Tobala notes of earth and sweet, plant-like flavors that morph into a rather peppery note on the finish. It's an elegant expression of the famed wild agave on all levels. Cooked in a concave stone oven, milled by stone roller, wild fermented ...

This K&L exclusive is made of rare agaves that were roasted, mashed, fermented, and distilled together. Sierra Negra is an Agave Americana, akin to Arroqueño, but with a shorter lifespan (12-15 years) and thinner leaves which have a distinct black spine running up and down their edges. It grows wildly, but is also cultivated by a select few intrepid souls. Alberto Martinez, producer of this incredible mezcal is one of the few distillers left in Santa Catarina Alborradas. The altitude is about 6,500 feet above sea level at the distillery and Alberto's fie...

This espadin (A. Angustifolia) mezcal is the perfect place to start for anyone looking to explore the world of quality mezcal or for a relatively inexpensive option for your mezcal based cocktails. It's very approachable and laden with sweet agave fruit. The smoke component is decidedly there, but not very intense. A rich texture makes this a delightful sipper or stout component in a mezcal variant of the Last Word.

Yuu Baal Madrecuixe Artisanal Mezcal (750ml) (Elsewhere $128) (Elsewhere $128)

Yuu Baal is one of the best new mezcal labels we've seen from Oaxaca in the last few years, originating from the town of San Juan del Rio, one of the region's most well-regarded distillation centers. The brand (which translates to "earth" and "fire" in Zapotec) also incorporates spirits from San Luis del Rio, Santa Ana del Rio, and Santo Domingo Albarradas in what has immediately become one of the most diverse and high-quality line-ups we carry. Madrecuixe is one of the most coveted and complex of the mezcal wild agaves, and the immediate aromas from the...

Casa Dragones Joven Sipping Tequila (750ml - ships as a 1.5L due to bottle shape)
Back In Stock!
96 points Wine Enthusiast: "Although billed as a joven, this Tequila is blended with a touch of añejo. The end result is extraordinarily smooth, with a very sweet, fruity, almost wine-like nose but a bold, pure peppery flavor that finishes cleanly. The packaging is gift-worthy, presenting the bottle in a gold-and-robin’s egg blue box, like a precious jewel. (KN)" (05/2013) K&L Notes: Casa Dragones is 100% Blue Agave Joven Tequila.

*96 points, Ultimate Spirits Challenge Top 100 of 2020* Ocho's tequilas are made by Carlos Camarena, a third-generation Tequilero, and Tequila Ambassador Tomas Estes. And each vintage -- yes, these are vintage designated tequilas -- comes from a single estate with its own mesoclimate, making them the most terroir-driven tequilas on the market. The NOM 1474 or Tequilera Los Alambiques actually represents the very same facility where the famous Tapatio and El Tesoro are made, the famous La Altena Distillery. This collaboration seeks to distill the purest f...

Azteca Azul is produced by one of the finest highland distillers in the world, Tequila Supremo. Known commercially as Casa Camarena, the famous house was established by Augustin Camarena in 1938. The prominent agave-growing family founded the town of Arandas and multiple distilleries. The woman who runs the distillery, Dona Elena Herrera Orendain, is Tequila royalty. The great-great-granddaughter of Don José Cuervo, she's built Casa Camarena into Jalisco's fourth largest distiller that you've never heard of. Despite their size, their commitment to qualit...

93 points Wine Enthusiast: "Though it’s light straw in the glass, with hardly any color, the flavor is robust and complex. Scented with perky black pepper and spice, the palate echoes the pepper up front, followed by a fleeting meaty umami note midpalate and a long finish that boasts sparks of ginger and cayenne. Aged eight months." (05/2015)

This blanco is wonderfully supple with butterscotch flavors that come from the five day fermentation of the agave. There is no barrel aging yet it tastes so rich! Guillermo Erickson Sauza, a fifth-generation family member, produces Tequila Fortaleza using traditional techniques. This is a beautifully hand-crafted, stone-milled tequila. Tequila Fortaleza is produced entirely within the walls of their estate, using centuries-old traditional methods which, although very labor intensive, create a tequila that is unequaled in taste and smoothness.

This wonderful Mexicano (Agave Rhodancantha) was distilled by a high quality palenque in Santiago Matatlan. El Samaritano is the personal brand of the distillers, the Blas Family. The family has been making mezcal for three generations and still makes uses traditional artesenal techniques. The patriarche, Ambrosio Martinez Blas, has been working in the palenque since he was a young boy and plans to leave the distillery to his son. They'd never used Mexicano before and this special batch yielded less than 700 bottles. It's won double gold at the San Franc...

I first stumbled across the Verde Momento at an excellent bar called Guilty in Guadalajara. This city is vibrant, complex, and cosmopolitan, filled with excellent food and highbrow cocktail stops along side old school saloons, bad tourist traps and well worn corners where some of the world's finest tacos are slung. When I saw the wild label across the bar, I imagined that this must be some new boutique-y, ultra-limited mezcal, but when the bartender reached for it to prepare my cocktail, I realized that this might just be something more attainable.

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 ma...

The oldest expression from Carlos Camarena's Tapatio brand is finally available stateside. Rich and butterscotchy and with hints of black pepper and citrus, it is distilled exclusively from perfectly matured agave at the famous La Altena distillery in Arandas. When they tell you how this stuff was made, it just boggles the mind. Distilled in 2000, this is the official SECOND batch of Excelencia. It was filled into the same barrels as the first directly after they were dumped and aged for four years before being transferred into glass containers. There it...

Yuu Baal's wild Tepeztate expression is perhaps one of the most polished top-shelf mezcals we've ever tasted, perfectly balancing the line between classic agave spirit flavor and more exotic notes of earth, spice, and savory.

The follow up to the unbelievable first batch of Huerta Singular, the Las Antenas highlights a completely different terroir with the same goal of creating a completely unique example of blanco tequila. The over-ripe pinto Blue Weber agave for this batch was grown entirely in the mineral-laden caliche soils of Vista Hermosa in Michoacán. The ground is rich in calcium carbonate at the high elevation field. Just over five thousand feet from the sea level, the agave was left to ripen in the field after the quixote was cut resulting in an ultra-ripe "pinto" o...

From the distillery of Enrique Fonseca, the man behind the legendary K&L Fuenteseca, comes this value-priced label of liter-sized tequila that seems almost too good to be true. I'm willing to bet we'll have a problem selling the Cimarron selections, rather than the ridiculous success we should experience, simply because people will wonder why it's so cheap? Don't let the price tag sway you, however -- this is clean, fresh, easy-drinking tequila made from 100% agave that is definitely up to Enrique's high standards.

"Tapatio" is a word that refers to a man from Jalisco, the Tequila-producing state in Mexico. In this case, it refers to Don Felipe Camarena, who opened the La Alteña distillery in 1937 where his grandchildren now make Tapatio tequila. The family has roots of making tequila that reach back to the 1800s, but the family's destillery was destroyed during the Mexican Revolution.

Introducing the newest addition to Jake Lustig's ArteNOM portfolio, the deliciously fruit-forward blanco expression from NOM 1579.
