The word Koch comes from the scientific name of the pulquero agave, -Ferox Koch-, the first agave plant that was used to extract the base of a drink in pre-Hispanic Mexico.
Koch is the first variety of agavaceae, the one we call “mansor or pulquero” that we use for the production of the Mexican fermented drink known as pulque, a sacred drink for the Aztec culture, produced before our encounter with Europe.
The birth certificate of this drink also represents the origin of human consumption of the agave plant. Here lies the importance of the name Koch El Mezcal and its meaning. KOCH is a name for a history, an origin, an identity.
