About this mezcal
Koch en Olla de Barra is made with agave Espadin. The difference between this mezcal and Koch’s other Espadin is the cooking and distillation method, where this mezcal is distilled in small clay pots. This mezcal is made by Alberto Vasquez in Sola de Vega. It has sweet, fruity tones with a slight taste of coconut, followed by tones of herbs and spices. Another edition bottled by Koch is produced by mezcal Israel Palestino in Jayacatlán, Oaxaca.
Carlos Moreno’s family has been linked to mezcal since the beginning of the 20th century. In 2009, Carlos resumed the family tradition and teamed up with 5th generation maestro mezcalero Pedro Hernandez to create Koch El Mezcal de Oaxaca, with the goal of preserving and promoting mezcal culture. After 10 years of business, they’ve now integrated more than 15 communities and 50 producing families into their collective. Each batch will vary, so check your bottle for details.
