Koch Tobala Mezcal Joven was created by master distiller Pedro Hernandez in San Baltazar Guelavila, 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 Tobala Mezcal Joven is made with wild agave Tobala. The agave Tobala is considered the king agave. It is very small, and a large amount of agave pinas are needed to make a single batch of mezcal. Koch Tobala Mezcal Joven is notably complex in taste and mouthfeel. Tobala agave is harvested after 9 years of growth. It is made by Pedro Hernandez in San Baltazar. It is a subtle mezcal with floral tones and a great herbal permanence on the palate.
