Banhez Mezcal

In the tiny village of San Miguel Ejutla in the central valley of Oaxaca, a co-operative comprised of 20 families (Integradora Comercial de Ejutlas) is committed to sustainable, fair trade mezcal production the same way it’s been done by their ancestors for nearly two centuries. Underground wood-fired pits, donkey-pulled tahonas (stone-wheel mills), fermentation in wooden tanks and small-batch distillation in copper alembics punctuate a process that has been and remains the life’s work of these mezcaleros, with the same care and attention to detail reflected in each and every bottle.

Banhez  is a delightfully mild, floral and fruity (pineapple, banana) mezcal perfect for first-time mezcal tasters and wonderful for cocktail innovation.

In the heart of Oaxaca, ICESA families have been crafting this rich, smoky spirit for generations in traditional ways unchanged by the passage of time.
