Bozal Tobalá, Reserva (SRP: $129) is made from Potatorum Agave, which comes from San Juan Bautista Jayacatlán in the state of Oaxaca. This reserve mezcal offers fruit-forward aromas of melon and apricot, the company says. It has a suggested retail price of $129 per 750-ml. bottle.
Bozal Chino Verde, Reserva ($129) comes from Sola de Vega in the state of Oaxaca. Without the addition of artificial yeast, open-air wood tub fermentation allows the sugars to ferment.

Bozal, which means “wild” or “untamed” in Spanish, references the wild species of agave grown in the hillsides of Oaxaca and Guerrero.
