About this mezcal
El Buho is known for making a quality, affordable mezcal made with agave Espadin, but is now expanding into the wild agave territory with this limited edition agave Tepeztate. Production of El Buho mezcals are overseen by the family matriarch Elsa Jaurez Mendez and her husband, Master Mezcalero Octavio Jiménez Monterroza. The agaves in Lot 2 were sourced in Santa Maria Zoquitlan, Oaxaca and the resulting mezcal was rested in stainless steel tanks for 20 months. According to El Buho, agave Tepeztate requires a 3rd distillation due to its low sugar content.
El Buho Mezcal
El Buho Mezcal was founded by Jose Isaac "Pepe" Jimenez Mendez, relative of Master Mezcalero Octavio Jiménez Monterroza, and TJ Steele, a Brooklyn-based chef. TJ and Pepe launched their mezcal brand with a mission to deliver a high-quality mezcal at an affordable price in an iconic bottle. El Buho Mezcal is a small batch mezcal that is made in the heart of Oaxaca. Their mezcal is produced by the same family that produces Fidencio.
