About this mezcal
Banhez Arroqueño is produced using 100% maguey Arroqueño (agave Americana) by Apolonio Patricio Lopez in San Agustín Amatengo, Ejutla, Oaxaca. It was fermented with natural yeasts for 5-6 days and distilled in copper pots. This mezcal is earthy and dark with subtle smoke and an underlying sweetness.
Banhez Mezcal is a co-operative comprised of 35+ families in the tiny village of San Miguel Ejutla in the central valley of Oaxaca. The Banhez Mezcal co-op is committed to sustainable, fair trade mezcal production the same way it’s been done by their ancestors for nearly two centuries. The Banhez Ensamble is made by the collective and the brand also has single agave varietals produced by a single mezcalero from the co-op.
