Mezcal Amarás - Mezcal Amores is an artisanal mezcal made in Santiago Matatlán in Oaxaca from espadín agave that take ten years to grow. The piñas (harvested agave which resemble pineapples) are cooked for five days in underground ovens, crushed by a traditional Egyptian mill, and undergo open air fermentation in wooden vats between 5 to 15 days depending the period of the year, then triple distilled in wood-fired copper stills.
Mezcal Amarás is bottled at 37% ABV which means there is no big alcohol hit to assault the senses. The triple distillation method gives the agave spirit smoothness without losing the smoky properties. It’s elegant and earthy, smooth and soft with good smoke which makes it an ideal mezcal.
The best way to enjoy Mezcal Amarás is to sip it neat, not shoot it, and savour its earthiness and smoke, or use it in cocktails such as Pineapple Mezcal Sour (recipe below). The spirit also pairs well with food such as seafood dishes and dark chocolate with fresh fruit for dessert.
