About this mezcal

Banhez Mezcal is produced by a co-op families from various villages in the Ejutla district of Oaxaca. They are producing mezcal the same way it’s been done by their ancestors for nearly two centuries using underground wood-fired pits, donkey-pulled tahonas, wooden fermentation tanks, and distillation in copper alembics. At 42% ABV, Banhez Mezcal is perfect for first-time mezcal tasters and works well in cocktails. Banhez Mezcal was the 2017 Double Gold Winner for “Best Mezcal” at the San Francisco World Spirits Competition.

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.

Super sweet – loaded with vanilla bean, cream cheese frosting, honey, toffee and salinity. Ash and satisfying woody smoke adds a savory contrast. Pepper.

Delightful for a bottle that is ubiquitous and easily found. It works so well in cocktails and is even more delightful neat. Strong work, Banhez.

Am extra half star for the value. Soft smoke, cooked agave, subtle fruits.

Lot: B0040EB4219 Creamy, lemon rind, caramel, vanilla. Inoffensive but a bit boring.

Great mezcal for the price. Floral and a bit of citrus. On the tongue, a taste of vanilla with some slight smoke.

Salty with a good floral and fruity finish. Low-alcohol smooth with less smoke and more of a round wet mouth feel. I would definitely drink again but not always the best.

Citrus, pineapple, banana, slight bell pepper.

This is my favorite mezcal for cocktails, but it’s also great on its own.

For the price, this was surprisingly good. I kept thinking there was a catch, but the more I learned about the brand, the more I realized it was legit. Cooked agave, island fruit, and some light smoke on this one.

Good for the price. Reminds me of Union (same ensamble type too). Low ABV with nice notes of vanilla, lemon, and roasted agave. Didn’t catch the lot number but it was a liter bottle with blue agave artwork.

A beautiful blend of barril and espadin agaves, there is no better mezcal underthe $40 price, yet this retails at $29.99. Lovely story as well being owned by a cooperative from farmers in Ejutla, Oaxaca.

Lot EVJ421318. Soft aromas of lavender, vanilla, and whole coffee beans. Very soft and light on the palate. Notes of banana and lemon. I like this and the price is good for cocktails.
