About this mezcal
Hop Mez is a unique agave spirit triple-distilled with centennial hops. Hop Mez is hand-crafted by mezcalero Celso Martinez Lopez in Santiago Matatlán Oaxaca. Maestro Celso has a long history of using a wide variety of botanicals in his distillation process. His skill at infusion and distillation combined with Frijolotes’ vision have resulted in Hop Mez. At 40% ABV, this mezcal has smooth flavor profile of sweet maguey, spice, river rock, and mountain water.
Hop Mez is the world’s first hop-influenced mezcal. The creation of Frijolotes co-owner Fred Baptista, Hop Mez was conceived during a locked-down homebrew session in Oakland. Fred and Frijolotes co-owner Young Jung manage a portfolio that includes Mezcal La Jicarita, Mezcal Mezcologo, and in-house creation Bok Gin.
