Banhez Mezcal Artesanal Arroqueño (750 ml)

About This Item

In the village of San Miguel Ejutla in the central valley of Oaxaca, the Banhez Cooperative is owned by 36 families and continues to grow. The families of farmers and mezcaleros work as one to make award winning mezcal as their ancestors have for generations.

Banhez Mezcals are produced in Ejutla by a family and farmer owned Cooperative. The Co-op members work together to make sustainable, fair trade Mezcal as their ancestors have done for generations. From sowing agave seeds to bottling each expression, each step in the process is completed by a member of the Co-op - a member of the Banhez family.

Banhez Arroqueño is comprised of 100% arroqueño agave, an enormous species taking up to 25 years to reach full maturity and found only in rural regions of Oaxaca. This delightful mezcal is earthy and dark, with subtle smoke and underlying sweetness.
