About this mezcal
Wahaka Nanche is a vegan “pechuga” that is made from agave Espadín and nanche—a small yellow fruit that is added during the second distillation. This mezcal has a gentle scent of nanche fruit and smoke. On the palate, it has a mild vegetality with crisp citrus notes, and a pleasant viscosity that is warm and lingering at the finish. This extremely limited run is restricted to 102 bottles, so enjoy Wahaka Nanche while it lasts.
Wahaka Mezcal is the result of several childhood friends from Mexico City who turned their passion for Mexico’s oldest distilled spirit into a sustainably produced, community-focused, and internationally recognized brand. In 2010, they set out to find Mexico’s finest mezcal. After months of intensely researching, travelling, and tasting their way through Oaxaca, they found kindred spirits in maestro mezcalero Alberto “Beto” Morales Mendez and his family, who, for five generations, have been perfecting the art of making mezcal in San Dionisio Ocotepec, a tiny village in the Central Valley of Oaxaca. Together they created Wahaka, and with it, a new model for mezcal brands, one that was as committed to making an award-winning product as it was supporting the community from which flourishes. Unlike any other spirit, mezcal is a product of its terroir—and you can taste the Spirit of Oaxaca in every drop of this artisanally crafted, small-batch elixir.
