Mina Real

Don Amado Oaxacan distillery celebrates two distinct mezcal styles. Don Amado Mezcal is Don_Amado_Low2 made from agave cooked in a traditional earthen wood roast, while Mina Real's agave are steamed in Oaxacan cantera stone kilns to achieve more floral, aromatic characteristics.

With a 300-year tradition of crafting the libation with all-natural ingredients and expert technique, we naturally ferment our mezcals intact with their crushed agave fiber, and double-distill in locally-produced ceramic pot stills. Aged varieties are barrelled in Domecq brandy casks and finally, all bottling is certified by the Consejo Mexicano Regulador de la DonAmadoGroupBottleCalidad de Mezcal (COMERCAM).

Mina Real Mezcal is a more ecologically-sustainable mezcal made with agave slowly cooked in an brick kiln without the consumption of firewood. Our steaming method highlights the plants’ bright floral bouquet without burning an industry average of 3.5 lbs of firewood per liter produced. Utilizing a combination of both modern and historical technique, the agave honeys for Mina Real are fermented intact with their crushed agave piña fibers, followed by a double distillation in pot stills for a pronouncedmezcal_mina_real_bot_high earthiness and character. Mina Real Reposado Mezcal is additionally barreled in American white oak.




Caution: It's said 'for everything there is Mezcal' but we add 'except for one thing' - getting drunk. Please drink responsibly. The most accurate and dependable book on living life at its fullest says 'wine (or Mezcal) makes the heart rejoice' and 'makes life enjoyable' (Ps 104:15; Ec 10:19) but overindulgence can certainly lead to harm (Pr 23:29-31)! If you drink at all please drink in moderation! (Quotes from NWT)
