About Tileño Mezcal Tobala Joven

750ml & 96 Proof

A 100% organic and artisanal mezcal distilled in San Martin Tilcajete, Oaxaca.  The Tobala has a light, sweet, floral taste with notes of smoke and sweet citrus.

Tileño Mezcal is a tribute to the Zapotec people, artisans who are indigenous to this area of Oaxaca. Both the spirit and the packaging itself are crafted to reflect the heritage and the legacy of the Zapotec people, with a commitment to artisanal quality and authentic expression.

The spirit, bottle, and packaging are exactly what you would find locally in Oaxaca -- it has never before been available outside Mexico. Until now -- and you can be the first to try it. 

Tileño mezcal is a mixture of the four elements of nature: fire, water, earth, and air, that result in the inheritance of a liquid culture, which is made with the heart.

- José Angeles Elias

Founder José Angeles Elias began distilling Tileño in 2014.  It has become known for its excellent quality and its approachable flavor.  Exceedingly well-balanced, the taste of the spirit comes through with a pleasing amount of smoke that enhances rather than overpowers.

Tasting Notes

Light, sweet, and floral with hearty notes of smoke and sweet citrus.

Suggested Serves

Neat, with small sips.

Production Notes

Tileño Mezcal is roasted, fermented, distilled, and bottled under one roof in San Martin Tilcajete, just an hour outside of Oaxaca City. The Tobala is distilled from wild-harvested agave about 12-16 years old, which grows throughout Oaxaca. The agave is hand-selected for its maturity and sugar content, then roasted in an open pit. The crushing takes place with the "tahona de piedre," after which the crushed agave rests in open wooden vats to ferment for 3-4 days.  It is twice distilled in copper pot stills until it reaches desired proof. 

Founder Facts

José Angeles Elias began distilling Tileño in 2014.  Tileño is the name of the Zapotec community of San Martin Tilcajete that José calls home.  The families of the community craft alebrijes, picturesque figures carved and decorated by hand from a tree called "copal." The dyes made for the alebrijes are based on natural elements and inspire the colors of each of Tileños labels. Jose's mission is to ensure that the products he crafts represent the heritage and legacy of the Zapotec people.

    Delicious and authentic

    Amazing taste - if you like tequila or mezcal you’ll love this. I’ve tasted a lot of Mezcals in Oaxaca, Mexico where it’s traditionally from and this particular agave and distillation is great. Highly recommend for sipping or a high-end cocktail. Enjoy!!!
