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.
This expression of Jabali is made by Maestro Mezcalero Jose Espinosa. Comprised of 100% wild Jabalí agave, this mezcal is citric and light bodied with a lively mouthfeel. Tasting notes include lactose, wet stone, fermented fruit, and herbaceous conifers. Notoriously difficult to distill, Jabalí agaves tend to grow in groups, and the name is a reflection of their spiny likeness to wild boars.
