We stock a large range of Mezcal Vago here in Australia. You won't be dissappointed with this quality mezcal.
Mezcal Vago began when co-founder Judah Kuper visited a hospital in Oaxaca, Mexico. He fell in love with the nurse who treated him. Her father, Aquilino Garcia, was a sustenance farmer who also produced mezcal. Judah and Aquilino, along with Judah’s long-time friend Dylan Sloan, launched Mezcal Vago. In 2013, their first exported bottles arrived in Texas. Each of their mezcals is produced naturally in a traditional palenque with no additives. The brand aims to empower both the master craftsmen with a celebration of his art. Also the consumer by giving them the knowledge they need to find a great mezcal. The brand plants 3 agaves for each single agave they harvest. Their goal is to end the use wild agave by 2025 for most of their releases.
In 2017, Mezcal Vago began using different colour labels for their different mezcaleros. Emigdio Jarquin (blue label) distils in copper with refrescador. Aquilino and Joel Barriga (tan and gold labels respectively) distil in copper. Tio Rey (red label) distils in clay pots. All their mezcaleros use different water sources and make different distillation cuts. In 2018, Mezcal Vago established an investment partnership withSamson and Surrey. With the new partnership, each Mezcal Vago mezcalero has a stake in Samson and Surrey.
