Distillery Notes:

Mezcal Amaras is yet another fantastic label to wind up in San Francisco's Anchor portfolio. The process of making the spirit begins with the planting of espadin agave in San Juan del Rio, Oaxaca, which are hand-selected and roasted for five days in a stone oven. Distiller Laajsh Doob distills the liquid two times in copper pot stills after natural fermentation with wild yeast. The result is a clean, yet remarkably vibrant style of mezcal. With all the tangy, smoky goodness, but none of the impurities. Amaras is a fantastic new label that should take the agave spirits market by storm.

Made from Cupreata agave sourced outside of Oaxaca in the Mexican states of Mazatlan and Guerrero, the newest release from Amaras is absolutely stunning. Potent roasted flavors intermingle with spicy notes of pepper before settling into a pure and clean finish with subtle smoke and clove. A stunning mezcal that truly shows there's a long future for the spirit outside of the traditional Oaxacan zone.

Process: Conical stone oven, mechanical shredder, natural fermentation in ayacahuite pine vats, double distilled in small copper still

"A savory-sweet roasted bell pepper scent leads the nose. The palate opens with a flurry of black and cayenne pepper; sweet smoke, reminiscent of cigar smoke, takes over midpalate, drying to a complex finish mingling smoke and peppery heat, wrapped with gentle almond sweetness on the warming fade."
