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.

Wine EnthusiastThis unusual pechuga is made with no animal fats or by-products, just a whole lot of fruits (wild apples, bananas, apricots), nuts and spices. The end result is vegetal and complex, with sun-warmed hints of fresh tomato, bell pepper and basil in the nose and on the palate. Black pepper and peat-like smoke add a darker note, finishing with a spearmint jolt.
