A single-variety mezcal from Amores. Made entirely with espadin, this hails from Mitla and is lightly sweet with notes of mango, cinnamon and bergamot.
Each bottle of Mezcal Amores Espadin begins here, with agaves rooted in the volcanic soils of Oaxaca. As the agaves grow, they derive characteristics from their surrounding environment. The exact combination of flavour and aroma in this mezcal are particular to one field, in one valley, in one part of Southern Mexico.
A close relative of agave tequilana, espadin makes up more than 70% of all mezcal. It can take as long as seven years for one of these plants to reach maturity and become ripe for distilling. Skilled Jimadors then cut away the sword shaped leaves, revealing the heart or piña – so-called because it resembles a pineapple.
In Oaxaca, mezcal is made the same way it has been for hundreds of years. The piñas are roasted in underground ovens, crushed using a stone wheel – or tahona – and naturally fermented in open wooden vats. The wash is the distilled in small copper pot stills to create a full-bodied, aromatic spirit that preserves the essence of the agave.
For every agave harvested to make this mezcal, ten more are planted in its place. By doing this, Mezcal Amores is able to preserve production for the years to come and ensure that the skill of the mezcalero is passed on to future generations. The brand also dedicates 15% of its net profits to social and ecological sustainability programmes.

I love changing up my Tequila Margarita for a Mezcal Margarita with Mezcal Amores after trying it at Soho House - it adds a little bit of smooth smokiness but not too much.. delicious
Very very good.
My favorite mezcal by far. Super smooth and smokey. Absolutely delicious.
