About this mezcal
Koch Madrecuishe is made with wild maguey madre-cuishe that requires 12 years to mature. This mezcal is made by Pedro Hernandez in San Baltazar. It has citrus and vegetal notes with a discreet smoky flavor that blends with the taste of earth and roots.
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.
