About this mezcal
IZO Joven is made with maguey Cenizo (agave Durangesis) in Boca de Mezquital, Durango, Mexico. As of early 2019, they are a newer brand to the US market. Their Maestro is named Jose de Jesus Gonzalez, who produces at the IZO facility.
IZO Spirits (originally called IZO mezcal) is a company from San Diego, which bottles mezcal from Durango, MX. Both the mezcal and the packaging are a unique and modern take on this spirit. They custom designed the bottle, adding a smoke effect to represent the smoking process of the agave hearts. Their label is made just a few miles from their office, by Clove St. Press; each one is hand-pressed on a 19th century letterpress machine. Their cap is made of genuine onyx stone sourced from the mountains surrounding their distillery in Durango, Mexico.
In 2021, the brand raised money via the StartEngine platform at a $25 million pre-money valuation
