Los Danzantes (Los Nahuales) Espadin is traditionally made with farm-grown agave Espadin. The cooked agave is ground in a Chilean tahona that is pulled by a horse. It’s fermented in pine tubs, slowly and naturally (without accelerators), and with classical music to aid the cycle of microorganisms. It’s double-distilled in copper stills.

Los Nahuales is made at the Los Danzantes distillery in Santiago Matatlan, Oaxaca. The mezcals are branded as Los Nahuales in the USA due to trademark issues, and they go by Los Danzantes just about everywhere else. Though the mezcaleros behind this mezcal have been making it for generations, the Los Danzantes brand has been around since 1997.

Well-balanced aromas of roasted maguey blend with a mix of green herbs and sharp freshness.

Light, refined flavors marked by hints of sweet citrus at the peak, with strong lingering notes of roasted agave, a persistent citrus flavor and smoky aftertaste.

Silky, balanced flavors that are round and smooth, and spread equally throughout the entire mouth. This mezcal reveals everything and its strong legs and reliable aroma do not disappoint. The initial taste brings on notes of light fresh fruit, with a middle that calls into play concentrated green herbs, and then moves on to the sweet flavor of roasted maguey and a finish reminiscent of smoke and wood, including a strong lingering aftertaste that is generous in the throat and stomach.
