Banhez Jabali Joven Mezcal Artesanal 100% Maguey
In the heart of Oaxaca, the Banhex village families have been crafting this rich, smoky spirits for generations, in traditional ways unchanged by the passage of time. This mezcal was made from 100% agave, using only the spirit, bringing us benhez.
In the tiny village of San Miguel Ejutla in the central valley of Oaxaca, a co-operative comprised of 36+ families (Integradora Comercial de Ejutla) is committed to sustainable, fair trade mezcal production the same way itÕs 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 lifeÕs work of these mezcaleros, with the same care and attention to detail reflected in each and every bottle.
