About this mezcal
Koch Mexicano Penca Larga is made with a sub-varietal of agave Rhodacantha that grows with longer pencas (leaves). This is one of many subtle differences seen in agave Rhodacantha throughout Oaxaca. This mezcal is made in Sola de Vega, a region known for it’s clay pot distillation.
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.
