Banhez is a collective of individuals, families and communities work together under the banner, UPADEC - a co-operative, to produce Banhez. UPADEC is not the only co-op in Oaxaca but it is one of the largest and certified non-profit, exemplifying an amazing, sustainable and culturally rich spirit.
Organically grown agaves, surrounded by wildlife keep the crops healthy and give a unique flavour impression. Artisanal techniques, earthen wood-fire ovens lined with local river stone, tahonas pulled by horses, natural fermentation and small-batch distillation make this a truly hand-crafted product.
A sustainable blend of cultivated agave (90% Espadin, 10% Barril). A percentage of mezcal from each family is sourced and blended to create a consistent spirit profile. This gives members of the co – op sustainable income and prevents the over - harvesting of agaves. Banhez Ensemble is perfect for first-time mezcal tasters and wonderful for cocktail innovation.
A grounded nose of mild earth and smoke it has a sweet and dry with a round body. Notes of lime, banana, pineapple and pepper.
