Discover the Taste of Tradition with Hijos De Zoila Arestanal Mezcal (750ml)
Born from the passions of an immigrant's dream and the soil of Oaxacan heritage, Hijos de Zoila Arestanal Mezcal is a symphony of flavors and emotions in a bottle. The creator, Hernan Fernando, once a humble dishwasher in Los Angeles, embarked on an incredible journey to becoming an entrepreneur and tequila brand founder. His love for family and heritage propelled him to create this masterful Mezcal as a tribute to his mother and grandmother.
Crafted with Precision: By partnering with the Nolasco family—fourth-generation maguey growers and producers—the Mezcal is imbued with a rich legacy. Produced near the scenic San Luis del Rio in a rustic palenque, the Nolasco family’s wisdom resonates in every sip.
Bold by Design: A high-proof nectar clocking in at 48% ABV, Hijos de Zoila is a robust Mezcal that doesn't compromise flavor or authenticity. Its powerful notes result from a unique 7-9 day fermentation process, tahona-crushed maguey, and an intricately designed copper alambique distillation cooled by local river water.
Art in Every Detail: The bottle is a work featuring a label designed by Maestro Reyes, a native Oaxacan artist. His final masterpiece adds another layer of cultural richness to the brand.
Taste the Legacy: Hernan Fernando's family values, respect for tradition, and perseverance are distilled into every drop. It’s more than a drink; it's a testament to the beauty of dreams nurtured by roots and cultivated with love.
Indulge in the rich, complex flavors of Hijos de Zoila Artisanal Mezcal and experience a heritage that spans generations. Your palate deserves nothing less.

What is the difference between Tequila & Mezcal?
Tequila is a type of mezcal, much like how scotch and bourbon are types of whiskey.
Tequila and mezcal are both types of agave-based spirits that are popular in Mexico, but there are some key differences between the two. Tequila is made exclusively from the blue agave plant, which is primarily grown in the area surrounding the city of Tequila, about 40 miles northwest of Guadalajara. Mezcal, on the other hand, can be made from any type of agave plant, and is often made using traditional, labor-intensive methods.
One of the most noticeable differences between tequila and mezcal is their flavor. Tequila is typically smooth and subtle, with hints of fruit and spices, while mezcal has a more complex, smoky flavor that comes from the roasting of the agave hearts before they are fermented and distilled.
Another difference between the two spirits is their production process. Tequila is typically made using modern industrial methods, while mezcal is often produced using traditional techniques that have been passed down for generations. This can give mezcal a more authentic, artisanal character.
In general, tequila is considered to be a more refined and sophisticated spirit, while mezcal is often viewed as a more rustic and traditional drink. Both are popular in Mexico and are enjoyed around the world, so the best way to decide which one you like is to try them both and see which one suits your tastes.
