Koch Mezcal, a brand that takes its name from the scientific name of the pulque agave, Ferox Koch, is deeply rooted in Mexican history. Founded by Carlos L. Moreno, the brand pays homage to the first agave plant used to create a beverage in pre-Hispanic Mexico. Koch Mezcal is a nod to the origins of agave consumption and the sacred pulque drink of the Aztec culture. The brand's philosophy is deeply tied to preserving and uniting traditions, and it's reflected in their artisanal production methods. The brand's story is intertwined with the post-revolutionary era when Carlos's great-grandmother Ricarda and Zenón Moreno opened a small mezcalería near a train station, offering the best agave distillates and local cuisine. Today, Koch Mezcal continues to welcome all lovers of mezcal culture.
