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...

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...

Yuu Baal Madrecuixe Artisanal Mezcal (750ml) (Elsewhere $128) (Elsewhere $128)
Top Pick!
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...

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 Tepeztate Artisanal Mezcal (750ml) (Elsewhere $136) (Elsewhere $136)
Top Pick!
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. There's a seamless note of black pepper, roasted agave, scorched earth, and sweet agave perfume all the way from front to back. Those searching for elegance, look no further. Yuu Baal's Tepe is cooked in a concave stone oven, milled by stone roller, naturally fermented in oak vats, and double-distilled in copper pots. No longer avai...

YOLA Mezcal (750ml)
Back In Stock!
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...

Rey Campero "Tio Ramiro" Cuishe K&L Exclusive Single Batch Mezcal (750ml)
Top Pick!
This extremely rare batch of Cuishe is why we make a point of travelling to visit producers. Originally not for sale, we were able to taste this extremely special batch while at the Rey Campero Palenque in Candelaria Yegole in February, 2020. This batch alone would have made the nearly 4 hour dirt road journey worth the trek. This was distilled by Romulo's father, 'Tio Ramiro' - who taught Romulo how to make mezcal. This superlative batch was destined for family gatherings and celebrations, just resting in a giant food grade tote off to the side of the t...

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...

The Ramos Family doesn't usually have much Arroqueno, but you can see a few massive plants as you walk you walk through their fields. The massive sword like leaves tower above all but the tallest Karwkinskii and their ashy color distinguishes them from other A. Americana in the field. The 2019 harvest only yielded about 100 liters and the family consumed or sold about half of it in the 4 months between when it was distilled and when we arrived. One taste and you'll know exactly why. This excellent example of the already well-liked varietal offers an incr...

Lalocura's clay pot distilled mezcales have built a steady cult following of chefs, writers, and mezcal-heads, who turn up at the palenque each day hoping to spend a few hours listening to maestro mezcalero Eduardo "Lalo" Ángeles tell stories. Before starting Lalocura in 2014, Ángeles spent years working as the fourth generation master distiller of his family’s brand, where he worked under his father, the late, great Don Lorenzo.

In the early spring of 2019, the K&L buying team travelled to Oaxaca to search for incredible small batch examples from Mexico's very best producers. We visited the Ramos family rancho expecting great things. What we found were three exquisite micro batches offering unprecedented flavor and rarity. The creators of Mal Bien Mezcal are building incredible partnerships with their producers.

El Viejo is a special blend of Tobala and Espadin from Union Mezcal. The Union between the producers, farmers, and importers is what this brand is all about. The brand helps support a replanting project for wild agaves through a careful nursery program and replanting the young plants back into their natural wild habitat. The success rate for these agaves is many times higher than for cultivation attempts. It's these type of brands and projects that will help ensure we have Mezcal to enjoy for many years to come. Of the thousands of seeds they plant, only...

Mezcal fans rejoice. Breaking Bad fans rejoice. Dos Hombres Mezcal has arrived. After Breaking Bad wrapped, Aaron Paul and Bryan Cranston were pretty bummed out they wouldn't be working together anymore, so they did what any spirit loving person would do and decided to start a Mezcal brand. However, they also learned lessons from some other celeb brands and realized they didn't want to just slap their name on something they liked, but source a quality product from real artisans. Turns out that Bryan and Aaron have quite different tastes when it comes to ...

Kara Newman of Wine Enthusiast writes: "Need a new spirit to pair with chicken? Pechuga mezcal, a traditional spirit of Mexico’s Oaxaca region, could be worth your attention. After all, it’s made with meat. Pechuga (“breast” in Spanish) is a style of mezcal that involves hanging a piece of raw chicken breast inside the still during distillation. The heat and steam from the process cook the chicken as the spirit distills, killing any harmful bacteria present (no need to worry about salmonella here), allowing the meat’s fat and juices to drip into the mez...

The "old way" of making mezcal is a loaded term, but in this case Los Nahuales is referring to a method of dilution using the tails of the first run (codas) with the heart of the second distillation. This practice was originally banned by the NORMA regulations governing the production and export of mezcal, but Nahuales has had the prohibition over turned. That means that all certified mezcal that's been diluted has used water to achieve a lower proof, instead of this old method. The tails from the first run are full of life and complexity. They add textu...

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.
