Kimo Sabe Mezcal is the creation of father-daughter team Jim and Ashley Walsh. The agri-business veterans began their work in the 90s by starting the first chocolate plantation in Hawaii. When starting their mezcal brand, the duo set out to create “the sweetest, most flavorful mezcal”. Their mezcal is made using non-traditional methods, which the brand embraces. Kimo Sabe mezcal is triple-distilled, with the first two distillations being done in industrial stainless steel and the third distillation in a copper still. The company utilizes their proprietary sound wave technology to homogenize the molecules in the spirit. Kimo Sabe claims to be the fastest growing mezcal brand in the United States. In 2017, Kimo Sabe became the official and exclusive mezcal of the long-running SXSW Music and Interactive Festival.
