About this mezcal
This Koch Ensamble is made with Agave angustifolia and Agave karwinskii in Rio de Ejutla, Oaxaca by Maestro Mezcalero Adrian Bautista. The agave were ground by tahona, fermented in open-air cypress vats with river water, and distilled in a copper refrescadera still.
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.
