Yola Mezcal ($44.99)
From the producer:
Our Mezcal is handcrafted, distilled on our namesake farm, bottled by women, with a recipe passed down from Yola's grandfather.
In 1971, Luis Jimenez purchased a Mezcal farm in San Juan del Rio, Oaxaca.
Today, we still honor his original recipe, abiding by the 300-year-old method of traditional Mezcal making.
We are dedicated to promoting the economic independence of the women in Oaxaca.
If you've never tried Mezcal, please stop by to try this one. It has a beautiful flavor, and is not as smoky as some Mezcals are, so it's a great introduction. I won't go into the differences between Mezcal and Tequila, but this is an instructive article on the subject. Yola's website provides some recipes for their Mezcal as well.
