About this mezcal
Koch Pulquero is made with agave Atrovirens by maestro mezcalero Pedro Hernandez at his palenque in San Baltazar Guélavila. This agave is more commonly known for it’s use in pulque, which is made from fermented agua miel that is harvested from the live agave as it enters the final few months of its life.
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.
