At Loló, we are proud to present one of the finest mezcal and agave-based selections in San Francisco.
Our love and knowledge of the different agave distilled spirits gives you an authentic experience of Mexico's most exciting and fascinating beverage.
Since pre-Hispanic times, mezcal, or mescal, has held a respectful place as a fixture in Méxican culinary and social tradition.
Mezcal is a distilled spirit made from the fermented heart of the agave, a plant with large, thick, sharply pointed leaves that give the drink it’s Nahuatl name for “cooked pineapple.” Traditionally, mezcal is handcrafted at small family farms throughout several regions in México.
A village usually has several of these production houses, called fábricas orpalenques, with each family using techniques that have been passed down from generation to generation, practiced for over 200 years.
In order to be called a mezcal, the spirit must come from one of the seven mezcal producing states in México: Oaxaca, Guerrero, Guanajuato, San Luis Potosí, Zacatecas, Durango and Tamaulipas.
Loló features a full bar, beer and wine.
