Los Amantes

 

Los Amantes has always been a favorite of mine.  I had my first sip years ago at their mezcaleria in Oaxaca and then again at El Central (another favorite spot of mine when in Oaxaca).  It arrived in New York years ago with the opening of Casa Mezcal and here in LA last year.  Los Amantes has been around since 2005 and is one of those bottles I keep having to replace at home.  Every time I have guests over, this is always my go to bottle.  I like serving it neat and having it before or after a great meal.
