About this mezcal
Mezcal IBA 40 is certified organic in both the US and Mexico. It is also certified Kosher by OneKosher. It’s made with agave Espadin and is adjusted after distillation to meet 40% ABV. IBA 40 received the Silver Medal at the San Francisco World Spirits Competition in 2014, and it won Double Gold at the same competition in 2015. The main difference between the IBA 40 and the IBA 55 is the ABV, which of course will impact the flavor, scent, and overall feel of the mezcal.
IBA means “heaven” in a Zapotec dialect. Mezcal IBÁ is manufactured in a community called San Pablo Huixtepec in the state of Oaxaca. Their mezcals are produced with agave that is cooked in stone ovens made of river rocks. Once fermented, it is double-distilled in a copper alembic still.
