Product xicala

Blaze Bright.


An ancient deity, Xicala is said to roam the land singing of love and dreams. Xicala Mezcal honors him with a light, bright agave spirit with none of the smoky burn often associated with Mezcals.

Using traditional methods of cooking, milling, fermenting and distilling Xicala is proud to hold the first Norma Official for the production of Mezcal in Oaxaca, Mezcal´s true spiritual home. Adorned with traditional Oaxacan hand carved Alebrije whose magical Copal wood wards off dark spirits, each bottle of Xicala celebrates the best of Oaxaca, its history and traditions.
