AMARÁS Mezcal Cupreata
Mezcal Amarás Cupreata is an exotic elixir, crafted under a challenging atmosphere in the deciduous forests of Guerrero. The 13-year-old agave Cupreata grows in a humid subtropical climate, at an altitude of 1,000 to 1,500 meters above sea level. It belongs to a small group of agaves that do not produce off- spring, called hijuelos, and can only be grown from seed, hence the importance of protecting the strongest and healthiest mother agaves and allowing them to reproduce in their own time and space.
