Don Mateo "K&L Exclusive" Pechuga Mezcal (750ml)
Top Pick!
The Vieyras are widely regarded as one of Michoacán's very best distillers, but this special bottling, unlike the standard Don Mateo, is Delia's special recipe. Delia Vargas Vieyra is literally the quintessential Mexican matriarch. She welcomed us at the Vinyata when we visited in February and was feeding us immediately. This special batch of Pechuga (despite what the labels say) began with a blend of Cupreata and Cenizo. Roasted over sustainably harvested (no green wood) Pine and Oak with a tiny bit of mesquite as a starter. Crushed manually and ferment...

91 points Wine Enthusiast: "Though it's made with ancho chiles, this liqueur is modest on the spice scale. Caramel-y brown in the glass, look for a lightly herbaceous aroma similar to root beer and rounded flavors that mix caramel and cocoa with raisin and cinnamon heat, with a faint smokiness on the finish. Particularly harmonious mixed in cocktails with brown spirits like whiskey. (KN)" (02/2016) Wine & Spirits: "Made in the Barrio del Artista in Puebla, Mexico, since 1927, Ancho Reyes is a spicy ancho chile–based liqueur that actually tastes like re...

Tequila Fortaleza Reposado Tequila (750ml)
Top Pick!
Guillermo Erickson Sauza is a fifth generation tequila maker who hand-crafts beautiful, artisanal tequila at his century-old estate. His tartabuelo (great-great-grandfather), Don Cenobio was the first person to export tequila to the US, way back in the 1860s, starting his own brand in the 1870s. That tequila (Sauza) was passed down the generations before being sold by Guillermo's grandfather in 1976. Tequila Fortaleza is a return to his roots and to the traditional methods, including the use of a stone mill called a Tahona to crush the agave, a small, c...

5 Sentidos Espadin "Batch ESALB01-19" K&L Exclusive (Alberto Martinez) Santa Catarina Albarradas Uncertified Oaxacan Mezcal (750ml)
Top Pick!
5 Sentidos started as the house spirit of the acclaimed restaurant in Oaxaca city "El Destilado" and has become a platform to uplift numerous traditional producers who otherwise wouldn't be able to sell their products on the international stage. There's a stigma in Mexico of exporting uncertified agave spirits, driven by the idea that mezcal's denomination of origin is synonymous with quality. In fact, the system shuts out many traditional producers and allows countless industrial practices that should be considered inferior. That's why many of the great...

90 points Wine Enthusiast: "Close your eyes and you might think that’s tomato juice in the glass. It’s clear, but the fragrance is zesty, lemony and yes, fresh tomato-like. On the palate, dried oregano and green pepper come forward, plus a trace of tomato savoriness, and it finishes light, with lively lemon zest. It’s mouthwatering, with moderate alcohol feel. (KN)" (04/2014) K&L Notes: This is such great tequila that it is well worth spending the extra dough. All the bright agave floral notes jump out at you on the nose, and the palate packs a strong ...

What specifically makes Enrique's single-site expression so incredible? Let's start with the aromatics. From the minute you pop the cork and begin nosing the bottle, sweet smells of incense, roasted agave, and tropical fruit inundate the senses. Absent entirely, the aromas are of pepper, savory spice, or vegetal notes, that usually accompany the fruitier tones. It's as hedonistic as unadulterated tequila can smell; but the spirit is not without spice, on the whole. The first sip builds on those enticing aromas, but a huge dollop of baking spices, sweet a...

El Viejo is a special blend of Tobala and Espadin from Union Mezcal. The Union between the producers, farmers, and importers is what this brand is all about. The brand helps support a replanting project for wild agaves through a careful nursery program and replanting the young plants back into their natural wild habitat. The success rate for these agaves is many times higher than for cultivation attempts. It's these type of brands and projects that will help ensure we have Mezcal to enjoy for many years to come. Of the thousands of seeds they plant, only...

Tequila Tapatio "Excelencia" Extra Anejo Tequila (1L)
Top Pick!
The oldest expression from Carlos Camarena's Tapatio brand is finally available stateside. Rich and butterscotchy and with hints of black pepper and citrus. It is distilled exclusively from perfectly matured agave at the famous La Altena distillery in Arandas. When they tell you how this stuff was made, it just boggles the mind. Distilled in 2000, this is the official SECOND batch of Excelencia. It was filled into the same barrels as the first directly after they were dumped and aged for four years before being transferred into glass containers. There it...

YOLA Mezcal has reached perfect balance between authenticity and aesthetics. Created in collaboration between Yola Jiminez (of La Clandestina Mezcaleria fame), Lykke Li (Swedish songwriting sensation), and Gina Correll Aglietti (chef and stylist), YOLA counters the patriarchal system which is so ubiquitous in the Oaxaca. YOLA is run by women and bottled by women. We've seen time and again that no palenque succeeds without the aid of a strong women, and YOLA provides a place where the women of Oaxaca can have steady work. In addition, they happen to be ma...

Azteca Azul is produced by one of the finest highland distillers in the world, Tequila Supremo. Known commercially as Casa Camarena, the famous house was established by Augustin Camarena in 1938.

The end result is extraordinarily smooth, with a very sweet, fruity, almost wine-like nose but a bold, pure peppery flavor that finishes cleanly.

I first stumbled across the Verde Momento at an excellent bar called Guilty in Guadalajara. This city is vibrant, complex, and cosmopolitan, filled with excellent food and highbrow cocktail stops along side old school saloons, bad tourist traps and well worn corners where some of the world's finest tacos are slung. When I saw the wild label across the bar, I imagined that this must be some new boutique-y, ultra-limited mezcal, but when the bartender reached for it to prepare my cocktail, I realized that this might just be something more attainable.

This magnificent Ancho Chili liqueur has been produced in Mexico since 1927. From the city of Puebla, the Reyes family became famous in the region for making the finest liqueur using the traditional chili of the area. The special Verde Liqueur is created using the still green Poblano Chiles harvested in August before they've fully ripened. The result is a bright fresh herbaceous and complete unique concoction that's perfect with agave and other white spirits. The crunch acidity and fresh green vegetal flavors are what set the Verde apart from its sweeter...

Enrique Fonseca distilled this expression in early Spring 2010, with three-quarters of the bottling made in a double-copper column still with removed plates to achieve a lower distillation proof and the remaining quarter made in an alembic pot still. Half of the run was then stored in American white oak previously used to age California red wine, and the remaining half barreled in used dark French oak. The casks were then stored for seven years at 3,800 feet elevation in a cool-climate subterranean barrel room.

Còdigo 1530 K&L Exclusive Single Barrel Añejo Tequila (750ml)
Top Pick!
Còdigo is the most popular tequila producer we carry at K&L, and for good reason. They set themselves apart in several ways. For starters, they only use "extra maduro" or "overly mature" agave for their tequila. These extremely ripe agaves make a rich and flavorful tequila with a luscious texture and intensity of fruit that is rarely found from larger producers who can't get enough quality agave to support their production levels. The second major difference in Còdigo's tequilas is their use of oak. They only age in Napa Cabernet barrels, not used bourbo...

"Tapatio" is a word that refers to a man from Jalisco, the Tequila-producing state in Mexico. In this case, it refers to Don Felipe Camarena, who opened the La Alteña distillery in 1937 where his grandchildren now make Tapatio tequila. The family has roots of making tequila that reach back to the 1800s, but the family's destillery was destroyed during the Mexican Revolution. The blanco is wonderfully vibrant with plenty of spice and a clean finish. Wonderful for sipping or for a killer margarita. 96 points from the Beverage Testing Institute: "Clear colo...

Los Vecinos Del Campo is the new mezcal project from Sazerac and Carmen Villareal of Casa San Matias. As with any upstart mezcal brand our first instinct is to tread with caution. There's alot of opportunity to get things wrong when bringing a new mezcal to market, but we're extremely happy to note that our friends from New Orleans avoided all of them. Instead, we get an incredible affordable authentic artesenal mezcal from the village of San Miguel Ejutla in Oaxaca's central valley.

Casa Tequileña is owned and operated by Enrique Fonesca, known as El Arquitecto, a fifth-generation grower and master distiller who holds one of the largest plots of agave in the industry.

Wine Spectator: "Smooth, peppery and clean. Produced by the Orendain family, whose members, according to importer Gimenez, are among the most experienced distillers in Jalisco.

It balances the bridge between smooth sipper and bright...

The "old way" of making mezcal is a loaded term, but in this case Los Nahuales is referring to a method of dilution using the tails of the first run (codas) with the heart of the second distillation. This practice was originally banned by the NORMA regulations governing the production and export of mezcal, but Nahuales has had the prohibition over turned. That means that all certified mezcal that's been diluted has used water to achieve a lower proof, instead of this old method. The tails from the first run are full of life and complexity. They add textu...
