Yola Mezcal is led by three women: La Clandestina Mezcaleria’s Yola Jimenez, chef and stylist Gina Correll Aglietti, and musician Lykke Li. Yola Mezcal is dedicated to traditional production methods and paying their workers in Mexico a fair wage. Yola Mezcal provides a place where the women of Oaxaca can have steady work; their bottling facility employs only women. In 1971, Jimenez’s grandfather bought a mezcal farm in San Juan del Río. Many years later, Yola Jimenez continues to plant all their own agave. She has also built a modern palenque that reduces water usage and log burning in mezcal production. Yola Mezcal strives to make mezcal as sustainable as possible, without compromising age-old traditions.
