What's the Story Behind the Coconut Jalapeño Mezcalita?

The Mezcalita, a cousin of the classic Margarita, has always been a canvas for creativity, embodying the rich tapestry of Mexican mixology. Our Coconut Jalapeño Mezcalita takes this legacy a step further by weaving in the unique flavors of coconut milk and the boldness of jalapeño, creating a drink that's both innovative and deeply rooted in tradition.

Our mezcal is crafted with patience and ancestral wisdom in the sun-drenched valleys of Oaxaca, using a blend of Espadin and the rare Cuishe agave. This meticulous process, guided by our Maestro Mezcalero Carlos Méndez Blas, ensures that each sip of Mezcalum carries the essence of Mexican heritage and the soul of the earth it comes from.
