Mezcal Koch Barril
Mezcal Koch Barril is an artisanal, organic mezcal from Del Maguey, at an entry-level price point and broader availability. Launched in 2010, it is highly mixable and arrived in much-anticipated industry acceptance and high bartender demand.
Handcrafted, it is twice distilled, very slowly in small wood-fired, riverside copper stills to flavor specifications that underscore its versatility in cocktails. Another masterpiece out of San Luis del Rio, Mezcal Koch Barril has a nose of fruit aromatics, a hint of honey, vanilla, and roast agave; the palate offers ginger, cinnamon, burnt sandalwood, banana, and tangerine, with a long, soft finish.

Los Danzantes (Los Nahuales) Espadin is traditionally made with farm-grown agave Espadin. The cooked agave is ground in a Chilean tahona that a horse pulls. It’s fermented in pine tubs, slowly and naturally (without accelerators), and with classical music to aid microorganisms’ cycle. It’s double-distilled in copper stills.
Mezcal Koch Barril is made with 100% wild maguey Barril by mezcalero Adrian Bautista in Rio de Ejutla, Oaxaca. Barril is a wild agave that can take between 15 – 20 years to mature. This mezcal is herbaceous and smokey.
