Mala Idea Mezcal
Mala Idea, which translates to “Bad Idea” is named in celebration of everyone who follows their passions regardless of the risks and challenges they present. From semi-cultivated/wild Espadin to the truly wild agaves such as Tobala, Cuishe, and Tepextate, Mala Idea Mezcal is handcrafted to ensure the absolute best quality. All their agave is cooked in a stone horno, fermented in open-air, crushed by tahona, and distilled in copper stills.
