Sombra Joven

Sombra Mezcal was created by Richard Betts as an alternative to the cheapening of mezcals made for use in cocktails. Sombra is produced by multiple mezcaleros in different parts of Oaxaca.

Erstwhile Tobalá

Erstwhile Tobalá Mezcal is produced in Santiago Matatlán, Oaxaca. This mezcal has aromas of banana, cooked agave and adobo. On that palate, there is a lingering round sweetness of caramel with a hint of spiciness and hot smoke.
