Lost Explorer 12 Year Salmiana Mezcal
The Lost Explorer Mezcal is committed to the sustainable production of high-quality handcrafted mezcal in a manner that benefits the local mezcal-producing community in Oaxaca and protects the land’s biodiversity, with the long-term mission of becoming the most sustainable mezcal brand in the world.
The Lost Explorer Salmiana is made with agave Salmiana (maguey Verde) in San Pablo Huixtepec, Oaxaca. Massive in stature, this wild agave species is foraged from its preferred high-altitude, adventurous terroir. Salmiana, also known as the “Green Giant,” can grow up to 12 ft. in diameter and reach as high as 6 ft into the sky.
On the nose, Salmiana expresses fresh green chili, vibrant grapefruit peel and agave after a rainfall. The citrus notes carry onto the palate with a sweet tint of dried herbs that lead to a spicy finish with even minerality.
