Mezcal Vago is a collection of small-batch Mezcaleros, who for generations have been perfecting their craft deep in the mountains of Oaxaca. Mezcal Vago labels are made of 100% recycled agave fibre, or begaso. Mezcal Vago's unique mezcals are naturally made in a traditional palenque with no additives. On the front label of each of their bottles, all the information is there about who made it, what pueblo, what agave, details in the process, size of batch and more. This is connoisseur mezcal. Mezcal Vago aims to empower both the master craftsmen with a celebration of his art and also the consumer by giving them the knowledge they need to find a great mezcal. All of Vago's mezcals are joven (young) and clear, exactly as their mezcaleros have been crafting them for generations.
