SAN DIEGO, CA – March 29, 2021 – (LATINX NEWSWIRE) – Beginning April, Mexico Costco shoppers can experience the superior flavor of IZO Spirits Mezcal through their favorite wholesale warehouse. A Mexican native and Mezcal connoisseur, Founder Gaston Martinez established IZO to share the historically smooth flavor of traditionally distilled agave spirits with the world. Now, Martinez takes his mission one step further by adding a superior, hand-crafted IZO Mezcal to the selection at 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. Toast life’s everyday moments with a distinctive, locally-crafted IZO Mezcal, now available at select Mexico Costco stores. Connect with the remarkable story of the IZO brand and browse a sophisticated Mezcal Ensamble, Mezcal Reposado, Mezcal Añejo, Bacanora, Sotol, and Tequila Extra Añejo Cristalino at IZOSpirits.com.
