Mezcal Tosba was founded by two cousins living as migrants in Silicon Valley, CA in the late 1990s. Their goal was to reinvigorate disappearing mezcal production, introducing traditional, and sustainable, generations-old harvesting and distillation methods from Cajonos-Villa Alta.

Mezcal is a distilled spirit made from roasted agave plants between two days and two weeks, which gives it a distinct smokey flavor. What scotch is for whisk(e)y, mezcal is for tequila.
It can be made from different types of agave in different parts of Mexico, but most of it (60%) comes from the state of Oaxaca. Mezcal offers a large diversity of flavor profiles and ranges between 40 and 55% ABV.
