About this mezcal
Los Nahuales Special Edition No. 3 is made with four different magueyes: wild Tobalá (48%), with wild Tepeztate (13%), cultivated upland Espadin (26%), and a bit of the enormous and scarce maguey Sierrudo (13%). This mezcal is extraordinarily balanced, complex, and rich. It was distilled by Karina Abad, who manages the Alipus and Mezcalero programs as well as running the distillery in Santiago Matatlan. She has worked closely with dozens of distillers all over the Oaxaca Valley, becoming familiar with differing distillation methods, differing yeasts, and all kinds of agaves from many different microclimates. Her knowledge of mezcal really shows here.
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.
