SAN DIEGO, CA - September 9, 2021 – (LATINX NEWSWIRE) - Now, many Mexico Costco shoppers can experience the superior flavor of IZO Spirits Mezcal through their favorite wholesale warehouse. A Mexican native and Mezcal connoisseur, Co-founder and CEO, Gaston Martinez established IZO to share the historically smooth flavor of traditionally distilled spirits with the world. Now, Martinez takes his mission one step further by adding a superior, hand-crafted IZO Mezcal to select Mexico Costco stores.
“We’re thrilled to expand on an original vision to bring the culture and flavor of classically crafted Mezcal to area communities,” shares Martinez. “Part of our premium IZO collection, this distinctive spirit is sure to be an instant favorite, both as a mixer and by the sip.”
For over 25 years, the term “Mezcal” has served as the legal definition of agave spirits originating from nine specific Mexican states, including Martinez’s hometown of Durango. IZO Mezcal features nothing but wild grown, hand-harvested Cenizo agave hearts, each slow-roasted atop smoldering oak in lava rock-lined fire pits. Buried beneath tarp and dirt, the hearts bake for several days before being fine-ground to extract the precious juice within. After naturally fermenting, this liquid endures two rounds of distillation, then is filtered twice more to remove impurities.
The result? An irresistibly smooth IZO Mezcal for all occasions. Discover a subtly smoky flavor and clean, bright finish perfected centuries ago through a historic roasting and distillation process - now meticulously controlled from ground to glass by IZO’s Master Mezcalero, José Gonzalez.
Discover a growing collection of sustainably crafted IZO Spirits online, including Mezcal Joven, Mezcal Ensamble, Mezcal Reposado, Mezcal Añejo, Sotol, Bacanora and Tequila Extra Añejo Cristalino. Taste a proud heritage of perfectly-balanced flavor sustainably distilled “from ground to glass,” and explore the rich history behind the authentic IZO brand.
