    Hi,

    My sister-in-law, Carrie Morris, just made me aware of your site.

    Que viva Oaxaca! My wife and I, and our two children lived and worked in Oaxaca for many years; still have projects there through our nonprofit.

    In all my years of Oaxaca experience since 1994, I have never, ever, ever tasted mescal that comes close to the organic Mescal Embajador!

    You should try it. It’s even available here in CA!!!

    Be well. Paz,
    Jim

    Hi Susan & Max,

    We have Mezcal Mano Negra available at some locations in NYC. It can be bought online at astorwines.com

    We currently offer two artisanal mezcals (more coming soon): an espadín from San Juan del Rio, 50%alc/vol, and a Tobalá from San Luis del Rio, 48%alc/vol. I honestly think they’re pretty amazing (we won gold and double gold medals respectively at the San Francisco World Spirits Competition); it’d be great if you include us in your list here!

    Love your blog!

    Funny. How much does the average bottle of mezcal cost in the EEUU? The best stuff here comes down the mountains in either gasoline cans or empty plastic water bottles. Why am I not getting together an export business? Viva Oaxaca!

      It really depends, a cluster cost $40-50, a cluster in the $70-100 range, and then there are a bunch between $100-200. All figured in US dollars. Not to warn you off the project but, boy, exporting is tricky. Still, have at it!

    Has anyone seen La Lula mezcal available stateside? Had a wide range in Tulum last spring and am still dreaming of a way to get my hands on a bottle of the pechuga!

      Hi Sarah,

      I’ve seen it in a few bars but those are just bottles carried over in personal luggage. To date I don’t think that they are set up to import.

    Hell Susan and Max,
    Could you share which is the best quality mezcal for the cheapest price that is available in california?

    reply
    • Max Garrone
      March 8, 2017

      Hi Carla,

      There are so many reasonably priced mezcals, it’s more a question of your palate. The best thing to do is to go to your local mezcal bar and ask the bartender for a flight of the 3-4 most economical and interesting mezcals to get a sense for what you like and then to proceed from there.

      Max
