About this destilado de agave
Lamata Lechuguilla Sonora is produced by Maestro Vinatero Ramón Almada in Alamo, Sonora using Lechuguilla (Agave bovicornuta). Ramón works on a cattle ranch in Alamos, Sonora and makes lechuguilla from maguey harvested on the property. The agaves are cooked in an underground oven, mashed with an axe in a wood canoe, and naturally fermented with added spring water. The result is distilled twice in stainless steel with the final product being adjusted with heads and tails. This Lechuguilla has notes of mandarin peel, melon, and pink peppercorn.
Lamata (formerly named Amormata) is the for-export label of Nacion de Las Verdes Matas, a small unregistered brand started by Luis Loya many years ago. His goal is to share mezcal from Northern Mexico from places that are under-represented in the market. Luis has relationships with producers in Durango, Nuevo Leon, Sonora, Chihuahua, San Luis Potosi and Tamaulipas among others.
The typical lot sizes of Amormata releases range from about 40 liters to 200 liters. The producers will continue to make about the same amount of spirits that they historically have in the past. Therefore, the brand will not bottle much more than a total of three to five thousand liters per year. Amormata is dedicated to promoting the “gusto historico”, the terroir, the liquid culture, and the history that is mezcal to people beyond the borders of the places where it is made.
