The Lost Explorer Mezcal
The Lost Explorer Mezcal is a collaboration with Proyecto Humo and master mezcalero, Don Fortino Ramos Florean. It was grown, harvested and distilled on the edge of San Pablo Huixtepec, Oaxaca in the Zimatlán District—situated some fifteen hundred meters above sea level in the Central Valley. San Pablo Huixtepec is roughly equidistant from Oaxaca City and Sola de Vega on the road to the Pacific. Fortino is a self-taught first-generation distiller and has produced mezcal for well over two decades. The Lost Explorer Spirit is part of a larger The Lost Explorer brand that includes clothing and wellness products.
