T.O. Mezcal is a brand founded by Courtney and David Yurko and co-owned by Cory Paul Martin. The Yurkos’ love for the spirit began years ago, and they were drawn to mezcal’s unique origins and artisanal production process. After discovering a unique and special mezcal in Chichicapam, Mexico, they knew they had to share it with the world. So, with the help of Cory Paul Martin, they set out to make T.O. Mezcal a reality.
Mezcal has been produced by hand for centuries, and the traditional practices have been kept and honored through generations. However, the process is truly remarkable, from wild harvesting, earth-cooking, stone wheel mashing, and multiple distillations, to making it available for the consumer. The smoky, grounding flavor is directly infused into the spirit as it is cooked in the ground.
This cooking process is the primary differentiating factor from its cousin, tequila. Mezcal is meant to be sipped so that the grounding energy goes into every cell of your being. Drinking T.O. Mezcal is a remarkable experience to be remembered and enjoyed.
The production process of T.O. Mezcal is 100% organic, and the company only focuses on organic and wild agaves. The love that is baked into T.O. Mezcal is vital to share. The people involved in the production of T.O. Mezcal pour their love into it, making it unique and giving it incredible flavors.
Community is central to T.O. Mezcal, creating and bringing together communities globally, starting at its roots in Oaxaca, Mexico. Community means family and human-to-human connection that creates a supportive web of unbreakable love. T.O. Mezcal products are created to deliver an experience of presence, joy, and celebration of life.
Preserving the artisanal and ancient process of producing mezcal is essential for T.O. Mezcal. In addition, the founders feel it’s vital to support the community from which the spirit comes and preserve this authentic process as demand increases for this limited product.
T.O. Mezcal is available only in select establishments in Tulum and other areas. With expansion planned during 2023 and 2024, the sense of scarcity around the product will only increase. The production process is artisanal, and only select establishments can access the product. This creates a sense of exclusivity, and people are excited to try something unique that not everyone can have.
The team behind T.O. Mezcal has been blessed to see the artisanal and ancient process of producing mezcal in person. They are immersing themselves in the community and mezcal production to capture some epic footage for content and marketing. This allows them to bring the experience of T.O. Mezcal to life for people who have never tried it before.
T.O. Mezcal is more than just a spirit; it’s a way of life. It’s a way to connect with others and celebrate the beauty of the earth. The founders and co-owners have created a brand focused on preserving tradition, community, and the earth. They are also making connections worldwide and will be navigating the legalities for each country as things progress so that T.O. Mezcal will be available globally.
