Amarás crafts award-winning terroir mezcals with a focus on having balanced, symbiotic relationships with nature. It was founded in 2010 by a group of friends who became enamored with mezcal after visiting several states in Mexico. Being firmly rooted in community and environmental sustainability, they take care to respect the land, the ecosystem, as well as each person involved in the process. They plant 10 times more agaves than they use, creating new jobs in the process and proliferating the species.

The fermentation process is completely natural and chemical-free, using only 100% natural yeasts and bacteria and forgoing any additives. Beside collaborating with small-scale producers, always paying a fair price for the mezcal they buy, and working with Maestros Mescaleros to preserve traditions, they also donate a 15% share of their profits to sustainability projects that work to preserve Mexico's flora and fauna.

Each village where they produce their different mezcals yields a different spirit. It isn't just the terroir that contributes to this diversity, but varying traditions and practices as well. In this way, the contribution of the earth as well as each person involved in the process remains unspoiled and intact ― and can be tasted in each sip.

The Amarás Cupreata Mezcal was made from Cupreata agaves in the region of Mazatlán, Guerrero, using 13-year-old agaves from the Madre del Sur mountains. A conical earth oven is employed and ayacahuite (white pine) vats are used for fermentation. This double-distilled spirit is bottled at 86 proof under the watchful eye of Maestro Mescalero Don Faustino Robledo.
