Vago Mezcal Espadin by Joel Barriga
Discover the unique taste of Vago Espadin Mezcal, crafted by Joel Barriga in the scenic high desert oasis of Hacienda Tapanala.

At Vago, we take pride in our small-batch approach to production. Each batch of Vago Espadin Mezcal is unique, and the bottle you receive today may differ slightly from the batch shown on the label image on the store. This is because we prioritize quality and authenticity over uniformity, and we believe that each batch has its own character that should be celebrated.
Vago Espadin Mezcal is made from 100% mature espadin agave, which is harvested by hand and roasted in an earthen pit oven. This traditional method of production gives our mezcal a distinctive smoky flavor, with notes of citrus, honey, and tropical fruits. It is perfect for sipping neat, or for mixing into your favorite cocktails for a unique and flavorful twist.
Our commitment to sustainability and social responsibility is also reflected in our production practices. We work closely with local farmers and communities to source our agave and support their livelihoods. Our production process also prioritizes water conservation and minimal waste, ensuring that we minimize our impact on the environment.
