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...

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.

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 ...

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.

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.

El Mero Mero Mezcal is the first liquor made from agave that was born with a tasting note issued by a professional sommelier, Eduardo Lópeztecillos: “Clean and brilliant. Pearls that confirm its alcoholic degree. In nose: cooked Maguey smoked with herbal notes. Strong resin shades, dampness and clay. Open attack in mouth, congruent with its aromas with a very long ending. Rubbing it in hand it dispels in resin and agave. It combines with moles, adobos, spicy seafood, pibil or havanero.” Espadin is the most common kind of maguey, it is a wild plant and it...

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...

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...

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 spriits 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.

According to the importer: "The “mother” of Agave karwinskii, the large and resinous Madrecuishe grows tall and proud in Miahuatlán. A long, cylindrical trunk (which harvested resembles a huge cigar) is topped with a tall, green bloom of leaves, spreading out from the trunk’s heart. From this trunk or stem, the Madrecuishe carries a lot of fiber alongside its highly concentrated sugars. A balance of fruity and vegetal notes is a hallmark of the distillate, implying everything from leafy green herbs to sweet carrots to raspberry seeds."

This producer and his sons make a very special mezcal called Pechuga that is many a bartender's darling due to its distinctively smoky-spicy aromas and flavors. Spirits critics have described it as "ouzo-like" for its intense petrol and anise-driven profile. It is triple-distilled and limited in production due to the special seasonal ingredients it requires—wild mountain apples and plums—which are part of a special combination of fruits and rice added to the distillate for the third distillation, which takes place over the period of 24 hours and requires...

Hernan Fernando, originally from Tlacolula de Matamoros, emigrated to Los Angeles in an effort to support his family.

With a desire to return to his Oaxacan roots Hernan created Hijos de Zoila Mezcal - a tribute to his mother and grandmother. This traditional spirit is brought to life by the Nolasco family, fourth-generation maguey growers and producers, operating from their rustic palenque near...

So what is the Alipús label and what does it represent in the world of mezcal? Alipús is a series made from contracted mezcales, purchased and marketed by the Danzantes group in Oaxaca, and imported into California by Craft Distillers. Each label corresponds to a specific village where the producer is located. All of them are made entirely from Espadin agave (with the exception of the San Andres that has a smidge of something else thrown in during fermentation). The point is to show the geographical differences that terroir, fermentation, and water ultim...

The man, the myth, the legend…the mysterious mezcalero Don Celso of Rio Golea is spoken of in reverential terms by agave cognoscenti all over. Celso distills only this one core varietal, but does it so beautifully that we couldn’t dream of asking for anything else. Truly legendary Espadín, which speaks deeply of varietal and place, with bold fruit and hints of hard cheese on the nose, and minerality, weight, and earthy musculature on the palate.
