The Aztecs were the first to cultivate agave plants in Oaxaca, back in the 1500s. Located in the south of Mexico, its mountainous rugged terrain and subtropical climate lend themselves well to the growth of these plants. While tequila is produced using only the blue agave variety, mezcal can be made from any variety of agave, and Oaxaca is famously the world’s leading producer of mezcal.
Pedro Hernandez is the mastermind behind Koch Ensamble. As a fifth-generation maestro mezcalero from San Baltazar Guelavila in Oaxaca, he created this superb blend using knowledge that has been passed down through the generations. To produce his distillates, he relies on sensory expertise and artisan techniques that he has refined over his lifetime. The result is this perfectly balanced blend that takes advantage of each agave's unique characteristics and personality.
Koch Ensamble is crafted using a blend of four different agave varieties: Cirial, Tobalá, Tobasiche, and Lumbre. Tobalá provides sweet, floral top notes, while Cirial adds a citrusy, herbal character. This is balanced by the earthy, woody tones from the Tobasiche agaves along with an oaky base from the Lumbre agaves. This array of flavours combines beautifully to create a multifaceted spirit that is new and exciting with every sip you take.
In 2009, Carlos Moreno founded The Koch Group with the goal of reducing the amount of Mexicans migrating to the United States in search of better jobs. The Koch Group thinks of themselves as a project rather than a business, working to produce high-quality mezcals, while supporting mezcal-producing families in the most economically unstable parts of Oaxaca. Across thirteen communities, they work locally and naturally, respecting the environment and traditional production techniques of the Oaxacan families. Each bottle encapsulates the identity of the village from where it came.More on the Brand
