About this mezcal
Mezcal IBA 55 is certified Kosher by OneKosher. It’s made with agave Espadin and has puntas (the first stuff out of the still) added after distillation to meet 55% ABV. IBA 55 received the Double Gold Medal at the San Francisco World Spirits Competition in 2014. The main difference between the IBA 40 and the IBA 55 is the Alchohol percentage, which of course will impact the flavor, scent, and overall feel of the mezcal.
IBA means “heaven” in a Zapotec dialect. Mezcal IBÁ is manufactured in a community called San Pablo Huixtepec in the state of Oaxaca. Their mezcals are produced with agave that is cooked in stone ovens made of river rocks. Once fermented, it is double-distilled in a copper alembic still.
