In the tiny village of San Miguel Ejutla in the central valley of Oaxaca, a co-operative comprised of 36+ families is committed to sustainable, fair trade mezcal production the same way it’s been done by their ancestors for nearly two centuries. Underground wood-fired pits, donkey-pulled tahonas (stone-wheel mills), fermentation in wooden tanks and small-batch distillation in copper alembics punctuate a process that has been and remains the life’s work of these mezcaleros.
Comprised of 90% Espadin and 10% Barril agaves, Banhez Ensemble is a delightfully mild, floral and fruity (pineapple, banana) mezcal perfect for first-time mezcal tasters and wonderful for cocktail innovation. Winner of Best Mezcal and Double Gold awards at the San Francisco World Spirits Competition. 42% ABV.
