About this product

With its smoky nature, Monte Alban Mezcal can be used in as an alternative to peated whisky in an Old Fashioned or used in conjunction with a lively Blanco as in a Agave equivalent to the Penicillin.

In 1975, Monte Alban was one of the first mezcals to be given an export contract.

Monte Alban is named after the ancient Aztec mountaintop settlement of the Zapotec Indians in Oaxaca, Mexico, a region known for its agave plants, both cultivated and wild.
