expressions of banhez mezcal

 

In the heart of Oaxaca, the Banhez village families have been crafting this rich, smoky spirit for generations, in traditional ways unchanged by the passage of time. "Only the best that seasonal [agave] harvest has to offer," is used to create our mezcal. Mezcal enlivens the spirit, bringing us Banhez, or bliss, in the ancient Zapotec language. Of course, like all bliss, Banhez is meant to be savored and especially shared.
