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. Reposado, meaning “aged” or "rested" in Spanish, is aged in American oak brandy barrels for 6 to 8 months. Bottled at 43%. (Bottle size 750ml)

Nose: Think black Kalamata olives, meaty and saline, spiced black pepper with hints of menthol herbs, Japanese mint, eucalyptus, charred agave, misty with wood smoke.

Palate: Softly coating, a gentle oily mouthfeel of caramelised sugar, then Blanco spiked with a stick of 70% cocoa chocolate, seasoned salt and hints of that Karoo bushfire smoke.

Finish: Lingering finish.
