mezcal selection in sfv

i'm looking for a bottle of reasonably priced mezcal, preferably in the s.f. valley. i'm open to elsewhere around town if necessary.

the del maguey line is more than i'd like to spend at this time, for example. are there good bottles of mezcal to be had in the valley for under fifty bucks? for even less?
and what stores carry them, please?

  1. Used to see them at the two Vendome stores (Toluca Lake and Studio City). Several different brands under $50, though it's been a few years since last I looked.

    1. The Wine House (WLA) has a pretty extensive list:

        You might check with the Canoga Park BevMo store too.

      2. Wine and Liquor Depot in Van Nuys has a very good selection. They definitely have Del Maguey but others as well.
