Character Goatson
Tobala is the King of Agave, displaying its authentic, herbal and briny character in this exceptional Mezcal.

Mezcal de Leyendas was founded for a singular purpose — to find a wide, diverse range of Mezcal styles and bring them to the world. They started as a single boutique in 2005 — the only establishment focused exclusively on artisanal Mezcal in Mexico City. In 2007 they opened a similar bar in New York called "Hecho en Dumbo." From there it was a small step to acquiring and independently bottling the Mexican Spirits they love. They have built their line-up to include six regional Mezcal core varieties and several special editions.

Tobala agave has been called "King of Agave" for generations. It takes longer to mature and is smaller in size, but the Spirit is lighter and more floral. This means that Tobala-based Mezcals are prized by aficionados and collectors. Mezcal de Leyendas Maguey Tobala Oaxaca is a small batch production version of Tobala Mezcal. And while their previous Tobala varietal was from Puebla district, this one is from the high-altitude valleys of Oaxaca. Mezcal fans… this authentic Spirit is what you are looking for.

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.
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.
