About this mezcal
Don Amado Largo is made with maguey Largo, which means “long” in Spanish. This maguey is a member of the agave Karwinskii family, and has a nuanced spiciness and mild roasted finish. This mezcal is on the fruitier side with somewhat candied flavor notes, a creamy mouthfeel, and just a hint of spice.
Don Amado Mezcal
Don Amado’s mezcaleros carefully handcraft all of their mezcals from 100% mature highland agave plants. After roasting the hearts of these premium agaves in wood-burning earthen pits, the plants’ treasured juices are distilled in traditional Oaxacan ceramic-and-bamboo pot stills. This unique distillation method gives Don Amado mezcals their distinctive smoky flavor and herbal bouquet, while proudly honoring a sixteenth-century production tradition native to the state of Oaxaca.
