Izo Mezcal Joven
Inspired by ancestral methods, agave hearts are roasted beneath the earth using hand-selected, local wood and volcanic rocks to create the finest quality IZO Mezcal. Our recipe to perfecting a smooth, subtly smoke mezcal has been passed down for generations.
IZO Mezcal is crafted from wild agave grown on the high-altitude mesas of Durango, Mexico. The wild agave is a true product of its territory – growing wild at altitudes up to 8,500 ft in dry, cold conditions.
It began as a dream for Gaston Martinez, to bring to the world a wonderfully smooth Mezcal. Slowly, the dream turned into a vision as Gaston spent years searching his native Durango for just the right recipe. The next step was to find the perfect person to give the recipe life. Enter Master Mescalero, José Gonzalez. Using the knowledge and experience cultivated through three generations of Mezcalero’s, José has brought together his passion and art to create our delightful spirit.
Always fascinated with the culture of Mexico, Gaston’s friends, Linda Belzberg and her son Torrey were attracted to his story, and so it came to be that with their help, IZO was born. José now spends his time overseeing the distillery in Durango, Mexico, watching every step of the production to ensure the consistency of this subtly smoky and smooth Mezcal, can be found in each and every hand-crafted bottle.
Torrey dwells in the trenches of the company’s production and marketing operations, while Gaston is IZO’s ambassador. Who better to spread the word of our delectably delicious drink, then the man who has for years nurtured the vision of this exquisite Mezcal and now has brought it to life!
Smooth, subtly smoky. Made to sip.
