About this mezcal
Bozal Tobala is made with maguey Tobala that took 12-15 years to reach maturity. The Tobala is a very small agave that can only be grown from seed, meaning that it takes a lot of Tobala plants to make a single batch of mezcal and it can be difficult for some producers to repopulate the plants that are used. This mezcal is made in San Juan Bautista Jayacatlán, Oaxaca.
Mezcal Bozal is a craft, artisan, handmade Mezcal. They celebrate the wild side of the Mezcal world and the wild agave used to produce such rich spirits. They use agave from the steep precarious hillsides of Oaxaca and Guerrero that are indigenous to the region. These varietals produce flavors that are exotically intense, with rich earth tones and savory smokiness. From the heart of the maguey these flavors are traditionally extracted to produce mezcal that is wildly refined.
