In the highlands of southern Mexico, the renowned Arellanes family has been crafting one of the region’s most celebrated mezcals since the late 1700’s.
Ten generations of continual mezcal distillation with a legendary commitment to craftsmanship and experimentation have culminated in a spirit that is simultaneously complex and approachable. Don Amado is made from earthen-roasted agave hearts which are, after crushing, fermented together with their piña fibers for a rich agave character. The mash is then double-distilled in small traditional ceramic clay pots. Aged varieties are matured in American oak casks previously used for barreling Domecq brandy.
