5 Sentidos started as the house spirit of the acclaimed restaurant in Oaxaca city "El Destilado" and has become a platform to uplift numerous traditional producers who otherwise wouldn't be able to sell their products on the international stage. There's a stigma in Mexico of exporting uncertified agave spirits, driven by the idea that mezcal's denomination of origin is synonymous with quality. In fact, the system shuts out many traditional producers and allows countless industrial practices that should be considered inferior. That's why many of the great...

Our spirits buyers were gifted two of these stunning black clay copitas on their recent trip to Oaxaca and immediately fell in love with them for their perfect mezcal drinking form and distinct look. They were made by Isabela & Ana Martinez, mother daughter, in the town of Atzompa. The family duo uses a unique reduccion method of firing the pieces. They immerse the fired clay in ash and it seals the clay while imparting a distinct black glaze-like finish. This method is different from the other potters in the village who typically use a green glaze. The ...

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.

The massive Arroqueño, a subspecies of the Agave americana, typically takes around twenty years to mature. Grown wild, the varietal was nearly extinct just a few decades ago, but has recovered in recent years, its population regrowing especially in southern Oaxacan districts like Miahuatlán through the efforts of mezcaleros and conservation activists in the region. Coveted for its high concentration of sugars over decades of growth, the mezcal tends to offer a fruity and fragrant approach, balanced with high proof and a rich body. A rare gem to experienc...

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.

Special Order Only! Will take 3-7 business days to receive this product before it can be shipped. No refund or exchanges allowed on special order items. All sales are final. 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 single batch of Rey Campero mezcal yeilded roughly 264 bottles, half of which remained in Mexico. The other half is exclusive to K&L. Distilled in October 2017, this batch rested for 30 months in glass before being bottled. This extended resting process gives this particular batch an increased sense of smoothness and elegance while carrying all of the robust flavors of Tepextate (A. Marmorata) and Pulquero (A. Atrovirens) agaves. This unique 50/50 field blend was a one time production created by Romulo Sanchez almost 3 years ago. This is one of the ...

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...

Produced by a co-op of mezcaleros in the village of San Miguel Ejutla, Oaxaca, Banhez comes from a sustainable, fair trade mezcal production, the same way it's been done by their ancestors for nearly two centuries. Comprised of 90% Espadin and 10% Barril, Banhez is a delightfully mild, floral and fruity (pineapple, banana) mezcal perfect for first-time mezcal tasters and wonderful for cocktail innovation.

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 the few massive plants easily as you walk toward as you walk through the fields. The massive sword like leafs 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 varieta...

Grown at high elevation (around 5,000 ft), tucked into the countryside surrounding the highly regarded mezcal producing village of San Baltazar Guelavila, this is a benchmark example of classic Tobala. A strong balance between earth, smoke, and sweet yam, with a dry salinity on the finish and a rich mouthfeel. The tiny Tobala agave, harvested wild at 10–15 years old, yields very low amounts of sugar (and thus, mezcal); it can take up to three plants to produce one bottle.

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.

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.

Harvested after growing 20–25 years in the wild, the Tepeztate grows to be massive; nearly the size of a VW Bug or a Mini Cooper. Found at high elevations, they often grow directly out of sheer rock walls and cliff faces, giving shade to smaller agave (such as Tobala) growing nearby. With huge leaves (pencas) lolling out, their brilliant, red teeth serrating a soft and textured flesh, the Tepeztate is arguably the most varietally consistent agave in distillation. Notes of green bananas, soft flowers, bell peppers, and melons recur in numerous examples, a...

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. An ideal example of this beloved varietal.
