Hottest mezcal brands now in Canada

We are excited to announce the arrival of some of the most coveted mezcal brands to the BC market. Buen Suceso Mezcal from San Juan del Río, Oaxaca is a beautiful, soft, and approachable mezcal, great for both the experienced and virgin mezcal palates (www.mezcalbuensuceso.mx). Mezcal Enamscarado, which comes as either a 45% or still-strength 54% ABV are bold, rustic and traditional in every sense (www.enmascaradomezcal.com). Ven A Mi Mezcal presented as a Joven (7 weeks in oak barrels) and Reposado (7 months) are refined and well-rounded mezcals of superb quality and complexity (www.milgrito.com). Both Enmascarado and Ven A Mi are produced in Santiago Matatlán, the apparent birthplace of mezcal, by the Hernandez family, who have been producing mezcal for generations.
