We love our Mezcal Amores bar in our store and are now introducing to selling them online - convenient for your home delivery.
Espadin is a single-varietal mezcals reflecting the Mezcal Amores terroir - 100% Espadin (Angustifolia) agave from Oaxaca State, grown 7 to 10 years; and 100% Cupreata (Papalote) agave, grown for between 8 to 13 years, from Guerrero State.
Each batch of Mezcal Amores is subtly different, reflecting the essence and character of the village where the expression is created, as well as the individuality and experience of the maestro mezcalero.
This agave is carefully selected and harvested by hand at the perfect time, before cooking with oak chips for a subtle smokiness. It is milled gently by a mule-pulled stone wheel (tahona) and naturally fermented in open wooden vats. Finally the maestro mezcalero personally controls double distillation in a copper still to produce the perfectly balanced spirit.
