Twins Jaimé and Gustavo just wanted to make a quality Mezcal for their restaurant. What they ended up with was one of the top Mezcals in all of Mexico…

Los Nahuales is owned by Jaimé and Gustavo Muñoz, identical twins. The duo are also proprietors of the world renowned Oaxacan Los Danzantes restaurant. Loz Danzantes features regional flare and Los Nahuales Mezcal was born in 1997, when the Muñoz siblings acquired a small artisan distillery in Santiago Matatlan, near Oaxaca city, in order to provide their restaurants with a reliable, quality source of Mezcal.

What Dufftown is to Whisky, Santiago Matatlan is to Mezcal, and the Mezcaleras behind the scenes at Los Danzantes have been creating it for generations. Los Nahuales is made using age-old artisan methods. The agave used in production are fermented and distilled along with all of the fibers and solids of the agave. This is what distinguishes Mezcal from Tequila, which is distilled sans fibrous solids. As a result Mezcal has way more of a complex vegetal character, rich in agave esters.

This Reposado is French kissed…66% being aged in French Oak barrels, and 33% in American White Oak. After 9 months of beauty sleep, it's bottled. This Los Nahuales Mezcal is bursting with flavor, defined by beautiful oak overtones, from their rest in French oak barrels.

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.
Los Danzantes has a variety of limited edition agave spirits from many states other than Oaxaca but they are only sold within Mexico.
All Tequila is Mezcal, but not all Mezcal is Tequila.
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.
