Celebrate National Cocktail Day (3/24/2020) with IZO Agave – a new mezcal brand that is that will give you some amazingly tasty cocktails.

(Scroll on down to see what that gift is!)




IZO Agave Spirits introduces a full selection of 100 % natural, pure-distilled spirits worth celebrating.




IZO Mezcal Reposado

IZO Mezcal Reposado is crafted from wild agave hearts traditionally slow-roasted over volcanic rock and offers a velvety, subtly smoky flavor perfect for sipping. Aged at least two months in American Oak barrels, each batch carries a soft, seductive aroma of banana and green apples set against hints of warm vanilla and rich walnut.

IZO Mezcal Añejo

IZO Mezcal Añejo also begins with the lightly crisp flavor of all-natural wild agave. After slow-roasting, each batch is aged at least 12 months in American Oak barrels for a rich depth of smoky flavor that warms the soul.

IZO Mezcal Ensamble

IZO Mezcal Ensamble artfully blends distilled Cenizo and Lamparillo agave – each wild-grown and native to high-altitude areas of Durango, Mexico – for an earthy, full-bodied flavor with a delightfully fruity finish.

IZO Sotol

IZO Sotol is distilled from the slow-roasted Mexican “Desert Spoon” plant. Maturing over 15 years and yielding only one bottle per plant, the distilled Sotol carries hints of the lightly sweet piñas (or “hearts”) from which it is sourced.

IZO 100% Agave Tequila Extra Cristalino Añejo

IZO 100% Agave Tequila Extra Cristalino Añejo features the distinctive taste of Blue Agave native to the Mexican state of Jalisco. Aged for 3 years in wooden barrels for a complexity of flavor, the spirit is then charcoal filtered to produce a bright, blanco finish.
