Banhez Mezcal is a cooperative of 36 farming families from San Miguel Ejutla, Oaxaca. Founded by Francisco Javier, inspired by his mother's teachings on agave cultivation, the brand has transformed mezcal-making into a community-driven endeavor. After his mother and brother's passing, Francisco continued their legacy, becoming the president of the National Mezcal Council in 2004. He later established the Consejo Oaxaqueño del Maguey Mezcal for local mezcaleros. Today, under the leadership of his son, Luis, the Banhez Cooperative forms the Unión Productores de Agropecuarios del Distrito de Ejutla de Crespo (UPADEC), championing quality, tradition, and community upliftment. Their commitment ensures consistent work, fair wages, and a brighter future for mezcalero families.

That’s a juicy boy!

You expect some sweetness and juicy flavor out of a tobala, but in this instance you’re getting a tropical rainforest of flavor. It takes a couple copitas to really break down the complexity. It was hard to rate. I would have given it 3.5.
