A Mexican-inspired organic agave spirit from South Africa, Leonista means “place of the lion” and is made from 12 year old agave Americana that grows in the Karoo. The production process follows an age-old recipe used in Mexico to make agave spirits like Mezcal. Blanco, meaning “white” in Spanish, is an un-aged variant in the range and is the closest adaptation to an authentic Mezcal. Bottled at 43%. (Bottle size 750ml)

Nose: Gentle wisps of smoke wind their tendrils through fresh lavender, pine resin, sweet stemmed grass and cut green olives.

Palate: Pineapple sweet initially, then a dusting of black pepper developing to a roasted, charred red pepper and wood smoke.

Finish: A tang of lime on the finish.
