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...
A subtle mezcal, with floral tones and with great persistence on the palate, completely aromatic and herbal.
AROMA: Of a fresh ocean breeze followed by coconut milk, hazelnut, celery, and star fruit. Herbaceous notes of oregano, followed by Thai basil, cedar, and roasted pineapple.
TASTE: Slight smoky notes come through with a combination of fruit along with walnuts and cocoa nibs which leave a slight spice on the finish.
ENJOY: Allow to mellow in the glass before kissing and enjoying slowly
