Try The Lost Explorer Mirror Margarita

About The Lost Explorer Mezcal
The Lost Explorer Mezcal is a handcrafted artisanal spirit made from 100% agave, cultivated in the sun-soaked Valles Centrales, Oaxaca in Mexico. It is a toast to empowering sustainable Mexican enterprise, whilst protecting the ancient artisanal craft, heritage and biodiversity of Mexico. Harvested in harmony with the elements and in tune with the rhythm of nature, the three uniquely profiled expressions, Espadín, Tobalá and Salmiana, seek to inspire people to celebrate the earth and live curiously, exploring the wonder and diversity of the sacred agave plant.
The Lost Explorer Mezcal is presented in a bespoke glass bottle, designed and made in Mexico City from more than 50% recycled crystal scraps that are reclaimed from the manufacturers onsite productions. The bottles are then hand-labelled and finished with a stopper made of natural certified wood, before being sealed and stamped with biodegradable natural beeswax that has been sustainably harvested.
