YOLA Mezcal 750ML
YOLA Mezcal 750ML - an artisanal spirit that follows a unique recipe from 1971, passed down from the founder's grandfather.
Our blend of organic Espadin and Madre-Cuixe agave is sustainable and produced with low-impact techniques and environmentally responsible practices, including low wood distillation, solar power, rainwater collection, and support for local reforestation initiatives.
With roots dating back to 1971 when Jimenez's grandfather bought a mezcal farm in San Juan del Río, YOLA Mezcal is committed to sustainable production, including planting their agave and implementing a modern palenque that reduces water and wood usage. YOLA Mezcal strikes a balance between preserving age-old traditions and making mezcal production as sustainable as possible.
YOLA Mezcal is led by three dynamic women: Yola Jimenez of La Clandestina Mezcaleria, chef and stylist Gina Correll Aglietti, and musician Lykke Li. Committed to preserving traditional production methods and fair wages, YOLA Mezcal provides steady employment for women in Oaxaca. In addition, our all-female bottling facility supports economic independence for the region's women.

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.
