Centuries of knowledge bottled as pure bliss.

Deep in the highlands of Oaxaca there's a town called Santa Catarina Minas where a family has been crafting one of the most famous Mezcals since the late 1700!! Don Amado is known for its craftsmanship and having the balls to experiment. They use local highland Agave plants and hear this: after they roast the plant in wood-burning pits, they distill the heavenly liquid in ceramic and bamboo pot stills, endemic to this region. Don's Mezcals thus get their renowned smoky and herbal flavor.

This very bottle is a child of Agave Arroqueno, a long and massive wild Agave that can take up to two decades to fully grow. (It's the genetic mother of Espadin, the most widely used Agave...) Maestro mezcalero Don Gernán Bonifacio Arellanes not only has a magnificent name, but also some real talent creating a creamy and smoky treat that oozes tradition and secret knowledge of yesteryear.

Arroqueno is a svelte and rustic Mezcal, unwrapping floral aromas with hints of Agave and leather. Expect quince, lemon and kaffir, enhanced by chocolate and spices.

All Tequila is Mezcal, but not all Mezcal is Tequila.
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.
