Awesome Mezcal

We’re loving Mezcal Amaras Verde’s label series by artists from Chicago, LA (our pal Chaz), Seattle, Berlin, Argentina, and Mexico. Even better is the naturally fermented mezcal, and the distiller’s initiatives to pay 20% over market for labor and materials, and to reforest Oaxaca with 10 agave plants for every one harvested.

Zignum Mezcal’s Joven, Reposado, and Añejo spirits are pleasantly smooth versions of tequila’s smoky cousin, with the latter two benefiting from 8-18 months in oak casks. The Oaxacan distillery’s eco-friendly initiatives include solar heating, water recycling, and a nursery where Espadín agave is grown from seeds.

Best of Show. Best of Class. Double Gold… Mezcal Amaras Cupreata keeps collecting top international medals. Proving that there’s a biodiversity of agaves yielding a wide range of flavors, Cupreata strikes gold by focusing on the distinct herbaceous notes from wild agaves harvested from the high-altitude slopes of Guerrero, Mexico.

Vamonos Riendo Mezcal

Vamonos Riendo Mezcal

Distilled in Mexico from agave, mezcal is characterized by its smoky flavor – not always desired by tequila fans. The subtle smoke of triple-distilled Vamonos Riendo Mezcal has wider appeal, using mature, high-altitude Espadín and Tobalá which concentrates flavors in the heart of the plant. Each sale benefits Oaxaca charities.

Mezcal’s come a long way from that junk with a worm in it. Conceived by bohemian artists, Gem & Bolt is a clear 100% Espadin Agave with Damiana herbs for a euphoric “mood-boost.” Produced in Oaxaca, it’s slow roasted and fermented with wild yeasts, and is fair trade and sustainable. Delivered by Reserve Bar and Drizly.

Sweet, smoky and effortlessly drinkable, Tres Papalote Mezcal is distilled from the wild cupreata agave plant found in a remote Mexican mountainside using a family recipe. Also, if it’s good enough for brand ambassador Cheech Marin, then it’s good enough for us.
