About this mezcal
Los Amantes Reposado is double-distilled and aged in French oak barrels for a period of six to eight months. It carries aromas of accented wood, coffee beans, and caramel. This is a great barrel-aged mezcal for those who may be more comfortable with the signature tastes of small-batch, high-end tequila.
Los Amantes Mezcal
The name “Los Amantes” is inspired by the Aztec legend of the goddess Mayahuel who disobeyed her grandmother and gave herself to Quetzalcoatl for love. She paid with her life. After her remains where buried and watered with the tears of Quetzalcoatl, the maguey plant grew, which of course was then used to make mezcal. Los Amantes mezcal is distilled by hand and made 100% of agave Espadin in Tlacolula, Oaxaca. The agave is baked in traditional hornos, milled by tahona, and distilled in copper stills. Los Amantes distillery holds NOM-O01X, meaning that it was the first internationally certified mezcal distillery.
