Koch Tepextate Mezcal Koch Tepextate is made with 15 year old wild agave Tepextate in San Baltazar. This mezcal is made by Pedro Hernandez, and it is complex and fresh with aromas of herbs and roots. On the palate, it is floral, herbal, and light with a somewhat sweet aftertaste. Mezcal Koch is 100% Oaxacan owned, and they pride themselves on bringing a streamlined efficiency to the 200 year-old production methods of mezcal. To reduce environmental impact they have come up with guidelines under which the whole production process is governed: Agave self-sufficiency, sustainable use of water and forest resources, and a proper waste management. The ABV of their mezcal may vary from batch to batch.
