La Jicarita Mezcal
La Jicarita Mezcal is a product of Frijolotes LLC, a spirit import and worldwide distributing company. The company specializes in handcrafted small-batch mezcal produced with traditional methods passed down for generations. The company has worked the regulatory and logistical hurdles to assemble a supply chain into the heart of Mexico. The founders, Young Jung & Fred Baptista, met in the art department at San Francisco State University in 1997 and the idea for this company began in 2006 when the pair drove through Mexico for 30 days with a group of college friends. 11 years later the company began after a night of mezcal drinking with the mission to bring back a little piece of awesomeness from Mexico to share with everyone.
