About this mezcal
Los Nahuales “Still Proof” Jabali & Espadin was distilled in 2016 using 60% Maguey Espadin (agave Angustifolia) and 40% Maguey Jabali (Agave convallis). The jabali was harvested from the hills of San José Lachiguiri, west of Miahuatlan, in dark thin infertile soils. Jabalí is notoriously difficult to distill; the jabali was tamed by the addition of blending it with mature espadin sourced from Pozo Blanco near Santiago Matatlan. Both agave species were roasted, milled, fermented, and double distilled entirely by artisanal methods under the supervision of Karina Abad, head of production for Los Nahuales at the Destileria los Danzantes in Santiago Matatlán, Oaxaca. This is the second “still proof” US release from Los Nahuales.
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.
