The Lost Explorer is a sustainable Mezcal range, produced in the sun-soaked Valles Centrales in Oaxaca, Mexico, by the internationally recognized Maestro Mezcalero Don Fortino Ramos with 40 years of Mezcal distilling experience. Luckily, the apple doesn’t fall far from the tree and he intends to pass on his precious knowledge to his daughter Xitlali, who is already working closely with him at the distillery. Partnering up with the British environmentalist David de Rotschild and the Icelandic entrepreneur Thor Björgólfsson, this range of three Mezcal products was created to honor sustainable production and artisanal craft of high-quality hand-crafted Mezcal, Oaxaca's nature and its local community. The production of the Lost Explorer range includes solar panels, a rainwater collection system, and carbon footprint monitoring among other sustainable methods. For every agave plant harvested, at least three new are replenished.

The range features three agave varieties, Espadín, Tobalá and Salmiana. After the perfectly ripe piñas are harvested by their jimadores, Maestro Mezcalero carefully selects the agave before it is returned to the earth and cooked for 3 days in conical earthen ovens lined with volcanic rock. Ground and macerated, fermentation follows in open-top oak barrels filled with pure spring water and wild yeasts. At the Lost Explorer, Mezcal is bottled in recycled crystal bottles at 84 proof as Don Fortino believes this is the perfect balance of raw ingredients and alcohol.

The Lost Explorer Mezcal Tobalá is a small batch, sustainably produced Mezcal made from 100% Tobalá agave. This agave variety is also known as the "Explorer Agave", since it’s smaller than the other agave and grown in shaded canyons at high altitudes. Tobalá needs 10 years to reach maturity before harvesting can even begin. This is a very earthy expression with notes of tobacco, cocoa, vanilla and leather with the perfect balance between woody aromas and umami taste. To top it all, it comes in a hand-labeled bottle made from recycled crystal and sealed with biodegradable natural beeswax.

The Lost Explorer Mezcal Tobalá was awarded Gold at the 2021 Tequila & Mezcal Masters and Double Gold at the 2021 International Spirits Challenge.
