Izo Mezcal is crafted from wild agave grown on the high-altitude mesas of Durango, Mexico, at 8,500ft. Hand-harvested wild Cenizo agave hearts are slow-roasted with smoldering, local oak in lava-lined fire pits. Covered with a tarp and dirt, the hearts are left to bake for several days before being extracted and fine ground to separate the juice from fibrous material. This juice ferments for several days before two rounds of distillation - the first producing a product known as “aguavino;” the second, Mezcal. Filtered twice to remove impurities, the resulting artisanal IZO Mezcal Joven is locally crafted from start to finish. Offering soft, floral scents of banana and green apples with elegant fruity notes, IZO Mezcal is seductive with a velvety, lightly smoked flavor. Its earthy, subtly smoky flavor and clean finish complement rich, hearty pasta dishes, pair perfectly with a zesty ceviche and can be enjoyed by the sip with an orange slice garnish. No two bottles are the same. Each custom-crafted bottle features a handmade Onyx stopper sourced from Mexico – a nod to Mexican cultural heritage, and the label is hand-painted. Smooth, subtly smoky. Made to sip.
