Destileria Los Danzantes Los Nahuales "Metodo Antiguo" Mezcal (750ml) [Cannot ship]

The "old way" of making mezcal is a loaded term, but in this case Los Nahuales is referring to a method of dilution using the tails of the first run (codas) with the heart of the second distillation.

That means that all certified mezcal that's been diluted has used water to achieve a lower proof, instead of this old method. The tails from the first run are full of life and complexity.
