Don Amado Rustico Mezcal
Our Don Amado Mezcal evokes timeless smoke, earth and agave fruit. Its agave are slowly roasted with firewood and the resultant honeys are fermented intact with the bagazo fiber. Don Amado's mezcaleros carefully handcraft Oaxaca's finest mezcals from 100% mature highland agave plants. After roasting the hearts of these premium agaves in wood-burning earthen pits, the plants' treasured juices are distilled in traditional Oaxacan ceramic-and-bamboo pot stills. This unique distillation method gives Don Amado mezcals their distinctive smoky flavor and herbal bouquet, while proudly honoring a sixteenth-century production tradition native only to the legendary state of Oaxaca. Don Amado Mezcals are always made from 100% pure agave and contain no additives.
