A native of Durango, Mexico, Martinez created the IZO brand to carry out his lifelong vision of preserving the legacy of pure, all-natural Mezcal for which his hometown is known.

When you experience the smooth, sophisticated taste of IZO, you’re tasting centuries of Mexican tradition, all thanks to one man’s vision to share it with the world.
