Amaras Espadin subtly perfumes the nose with a nice touch of blossom, which continue to unfold with every taste, giving way to a first touch of wood.

About this mezcal
Amaras Espadin is made with agave Espadin. Bottles of this mezcal are made by several different producers, so check your bottle for details. Many bottles are produced by Armando Martinez, but they also work with producers in Mitla, San Carlos, and San Juan del Rio. The information of each producer is on the label of each bottle. The Amaras Espadin, which is sold in the US, is mostly produced by Laajsh Doob. Laajsh Doob is a cooperative of 4 producers that share a palenque, agave, and practice. The name Laajsh Doob means Land of Agave in Zapotec.
Mezcal Amores (Or Amaras as it's known in the U.S.) focuses heavily on terrior and it shows in their product. Mezcal Amores believes that humans should benefit from the ecosystem by keeping it in balance. As of 2017, they had over 145,000 agave in their nurseries and they have a goal of planing ten agave for every one agave they harvest. They also promote horizontal growth of their mezcal production across several different producers and they provide micro-loans to mezcaleros who wish to upgrade their equipment.
