Coming from the borderland of southern Jalisco and northern Colima, Balancan Mezcal returns back to the roots in what is possibly the birthplace of Mezcal.

Harvesting the wild Lineño & Cimarron agave that ferment in the craters of some of the continent’s most active volcanoes, this bottle is made with pre-industrial techniques, including roasting underground, hand-mashing, and distillation in wooden filipino stills. This is an uncertified Mezcal, but sometimes that’s a good thing: it means more freedom to deliver the wild flavors of the region with traditional local methods.

While Mezcal is produced all across Mexico, most of the Mezcal we see is produced in the state of Oaxaca. Interestingly, over 70% of Mezcal is made from the Espadín agave—even though more than 20 types of agave are used to make Mezcal.

Espadín. That word means “sword” in Spanish because the leaves look like a mass of swords projecting out of the plant. Espadín Mezcals are most common because it has been the easiest agave to cultivate.

All Tequila is Mezcal, but not all Mezcal is Tequila.
