Yola Mezcal

Yola Mezcal is female- and Latin-owned, and they have a mezcal bar in Mexico City. [The founder] Yola Jiminez doesn’t have a huge company or a lot of people working for her, but she has made a name for herself. The tequila drinks beautifully, and it’s nice and fresh. The owner uses espadin, which is [a type of agave that’s] easier to grow. It doesn’t drink like anything else for me. It has a pleasant smoke smell that isn’t overpowering. It’s actually very refreshing on the palate.” —Natasha Bermudez, a bar director at Llama Inn and Llama San in New York City, and Llama Inn Madrid
