Koch Olla de Barro Mezcal Joven was created by master distiller Alberto Vásquez in Sola de Vega, Oaxaca. Koch el Mezcal produces traditional, handcrafted mezcals that are perfected by master distillers who have generations of knowledge in agave plant processing.
Koch Mezcal prides itself on 100% Oaxacan ownership and bringing a streamlined efficiency to the 200 year-old production methods of mezcal. They use traditional stone lined pits to cook the agave hearts, fermented, and then given a double distillation process. It is aged in oak for some years before bottling.
Koch El Mezcal is an unthinkably rare spirit produced exclusively from a range of wild agaves. The individual, intensely idiosyncratic, agave grow under harsh and generally prohibitive conditions come together to form a poised, charming, and tenaciously subtle mezcal. Distinguished notes of flora, mineral salts, and delicate spices tease your senses. On the palate, agave nectar rolls off the tongue while a pillow of smoke seems to linger endlessly on the finish.
Koch Olla de Barro Mezcal Joven is made with agave Espadin. The difference between this mezcal and Koch’s other Espadin is the cooking and distillation method, making this mezcal much more unique. Koch Olla de Barro Mezcal Joven is made by Alberto Vasquez in Sola de Vega. It has sweet, fruity tones with a slight taste of coconut, followed by tones of herbs and spices.
