Mezcal Amores Brand Ambassador

The Story of Mezcal Amores

Mezcal Amores or as it is known in the United States, Mezcal Amarás, was founded by a group of friends in 2010. This is a love story…a love story of Mexican people re-introduced to a Mexican world of traditions, respect and mystery that did not need discovery…only appreciation and wonder as to why the best and most complex distillate in the world remained hidden and misunderstood for so long. They vowed to create a Mezcal brand whose heart and purpose put the agaves, the land and the communities first and then to share their passion and devotion to this quintessential Mexican spirit with the rest of the world.

The Mezcal Amores Philosophy

Sustainable

  • We plant 10 agaves for each agave we harvest in order to avoid extinction of the species
  • Our replanting program creates new jobs and protects the natural resources of the mezcal producing areas

Organic and Natural

  • We strive to create the most natural product using only artisanal and ancestral production methods
  • We work with organic agaves and our fermentation process is 100% natural

Secured and Fair Price

  • By securing the future price of agaves we ensure a regular income to our farmers
  • We pay a fair price for each liter of Mezcal we buy from Maestros Mezcaleros, always seeking to improve their quality of life

Diversified Production Base

  • We partner with 13 Maestros Mezcaleros
  • This preserves traditions, maintains craftsmanship, creates jobs and distributes wealth in the community

Responsible Marketing

  • We believe all Mezcals should be enjoyed the way they were produced; responsibly and with respect

  • Secure the Mezcal pour for Verde Momento – the cocktail-designed Amarás offering
