About this mezcal
The Mezcalero “Los Nahuales” Special Edition No. 1 was originally released for the exclusive sale at K&L Wine Merchants, but became available at other retailers in late 2016. The marketed intent of this mezcal was to provide a new avenue for tequila drinkers to begin exploration into the world of mezcal. Most who have tried this would agree that it’s good for those with and without previous mezcal experience. This special edition is made with 58.5% maguey Sierrudo and 41.5% maguey Cuishe. The two types of agave were co-fermented by mezcalera Karina Abad Rojas, who is in charge of production for Los Nahuales, Alipus, and Mezcalero. The flavors of this mezcal are bright and well-defined. It has some sweetness and spice without being overly intense.

Los Nahuales Mezcal
Los Nahuales mezcal is distilled at the Déstileria Los Danzantes in Santiago Matatlan, the world capital of mezcal, south of Oaxaca city. The mezcals are branded as Los Nahuales in the USA due to trademark issues. Though the mezcaleros behind this mezcal have been making it for generations, the Los Danzantes brand has been around since 1997.
