A Magic Potion for Quirky Lovers of Life.

Mezcal Amaras (or as it's known in Mexico, Amores), was founded in 2010, when we all thought Justin Bieber was a good idea. A group of friends that fell in love with Mexico after a few trips decided to create their own magical Spirit. They explored every land that ever claimed to produce Mezcal and learnt as much as they could.

Then they decided to work with the locals, cultivate Agave in sustainable way and give back to the community. They get Agave Cupreata from the Sierra Madre del Sur mountains, swear on natural fermentation and open ayacahuite pine vats, and they distill this potion in small copper stills.

This rich Spirit came to life in 2015 and its aroma is intense in the best kind of way. Take a sip and imagine warm Mexican sun caresses you after you just arrived on a bus with a collection of vinyls under your arm for some reason. Oh, we forgot to mention this bottle is a pretty rare joy. It's made of Cupreata Agave which is kind of a big deal, since it's the least common Agaves used in making Mezcal. If you want to sound really smart, you can tell everyone they call this sort of Agave a "maguey papalote", which sounds really awesome.

While Mezcal is produced all across Mexico, most of the Mezcal we see is produced in the state of Oaxaca. Interestingly, over 70% of Mezcal is made from the Espadín agave—even though more than 20 types of agave are used to make Mezcal.
Espadín. That word means “sword” in Spanish because the leaves look like a mass of swords projecting out of the plant. Espadín Mezcals are most common because it has been the easiest agave to cultivate.
All Tequila is Mezcal, but not all Mezcal is Tequila.
