Geared towards sustainability, Maestro Mezcalero Armando Hernández watches over the production. Himself a 3rd generation mezcalero, Hernández relies on traditional methods, handed down by his father and his grandfather before that. This means that the agave is slowly roasted underground for 4 to 5 days. Then, it is crushed by a horse-drawn tahona mill and left to naturally ferment for 5 to 10 days. Afterwards, they are double-distilled using 250-liter copper-pot stills and rested before finally being bottled.
Mal de Amor Barril is crafted with 100% agave karwinskii. These unique agaves are harvested at peak maturity at 13 years of age. Bottled at 90 proof, the expression is fruity and herbal with smoke notes and plenty of depth.

Mezcal is a distilled spirit made from roasted agave plants between two days and two weeks, which gives it a distinct smokey flavor. What scotch is for whisk(e)y, mezcal is for tequila.
It can be made from different types of agave in different parts of Mexico, but most of it (60%) comes from the state of Oaxaca. Mezcal offers a large diversity of flavor profiles and ranges between 40 and 55% ABV.
The nose opens with bright fruity notes of citrus and cherry, joined by herbal and green aromas. The palate is smoky and sweet with green pepper, apple, cherry, as well as hints of coffee. The finish is gently warming with a touch of smoke.
