About this mezcal
Koch Lumbre is made with 100% wild maguey Lumbre, which is not commonly used, or at least is not commonly used under that name. This mezcal is made by mezcalero Pedro Hernandez in San Baltazar. It has notes of sweet, fresh cocoa.
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.
