IZO Mezcal is a company from San Diego, which bottles mezcal from Durango, MX. Both the mezcal and the packaging are a unique and modern take on this spirit. They custom designed the bottle, adding a smoke effect to represent the smoking process of the agave hearts. Their label is made just a few miles from their office, by Clove St. Press; each one is hand-pressed on a 19th century letterpress machine. Their cap is made of genuine onyx stone sourced from the mountains surrounding their distillery in Durango, Mexico.
In 2021, the brand raised money via the StartEngine platform at a $25 million pre-money valuation
