It all began at John Rexer's Bohemian artist refuge, Café No Se in Antigua, Guatemala. Opened in 2003, Café No Se became the heart of a thriving expat and artisan community of Antigua. As John's business grew, his interest in mezcal led him to "import" the mystical spirit in very "creative" ways. His customers took to the spirit and to satisfy the growing demand, he was forced to...

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...

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 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 ...

Yuu Baal Jabali Artisanal Mezcal (750ml) (Elsewhere $180) (Elsewhere $180)

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...

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.

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...

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.

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.

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 ...

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.
