Artisan mezcal from Oaxaca is a world-class spirit, and it comes from the last of the world’s great spirit regions not yet dominated by huge commercial producers. Artisan mezcal is richer and more true to its material than its famous cousin tequila: this because artisan mezcal is distilled including the agave solids and without diluting the fermented distilling material with water (done with tequila to recover more alcohol). Los Nahuales (Los Danzantes in Mexico) is the brainchild of the Muñoz brothers, producing authentic local products for their fabulous restaurants. Very very few spirits are so authentically hand-made by ancestral methods. These are extraordinary products.
