Los Amantes mezcal is an artisanal spirit made from 100% agave grown in Oaxaca [wah-ha-cah], Mexico’s premium mezcal region. Traditional underground pit-smoking and triple distillation gives our mezcal exceptional smoothness and complexity. Because of its unique and exquisite character, mezcal is compared with the finest spirits of the world.
Los Amantes translates to "The Lovers" and it is named for an ancient Aztec legend, the Legend of Mayahuel, which describes the origins of mezcal.
Los Amantes Joven is the result of Guillermo Olguín and Ignacio Carballido’s exhaustive search of unique mezcals from small villages around the Oaxaca region. It is considered to be one of the best mezcals from Oaxaca, carrying the COMERCAM certification which guarantees commitment to quality and flavor through the use of traditional production methods and 100% agave.
