A family steeped in mezcal production history since the 20th century but re-ignited by Carlos Moreno in 2009. Teaming up with 5th generation maestro mezcalero Perdo Hernandez, together they created Koch El Mezcal de Oaxaca with the goal of preserving mezcal culture. The result is one of the best, most affordable artisanal mezcals on the market in Australia. They have now integrated over 15 communities and 50 mezcal producing families into their collective. As with all things hand-crafted, each batch may slightly vary...
An ensemble mezcal is the result of expertly blending 2 or more agave varietals to achieve a unique, distinct and engaging spirit. This 4 maguey ensemble by Koch El is one of the most we've seen and it shows in the balanced and complex flavours offered up.
AROMA: "Cempasúchil" and "campo santo" flowers, minerals and spices, introverted aromas of chilli and hot stones.
TASTE: This isn't a smoke bomb, with fresh savoury notes and ripe fruit coming through alongside the smouldering flavours.
ENJOY: Allow to mellow in the glass before kissing and enjoying slowly
