3 Badge Beverage Corporation has expanded its artisan spirits portfolio with the introduction of Bozal, a line of mezcals that highlight agave’s varietals.
The first four expressions from the line are Ensamble, Cuixe, Tobasiche and Ancestral.
Ensamble ($50 SRP) is a blend of three wild agaves grown in Oaxaca. Cuixe ($80) and Tobasiche ($80) feature single wild agaves from Oaxaca. Ancestral ($100) is made from Papalote grown on the mountain slops in Guerrero.
The ceramic Bozal bottles, with a different earth tone color for each variety, allude to the “traditional terra cotta copitas sometimes used for drinking mezcal,” the company says.
