Welcome to the world of Loco Ambar, a limited-production Reposado Tequila that represents the epitome of measured complexity, layered elegance, and innovation. Crafted through a highly artisanal process, this tequila undergoes a meticulous balance of new and aged barrels, each contributing its unique essence to create an exceptional spirit.
- THE EXTRAORDINARY TAKES TIME: Loco Ambar results from a patient and artful process. A carefully balanced selection of new and aged barrels is used, each bringing distinctive flavors. The influence of matured Irish whiskey and stout beer lends compelling and exotic notes of honey, malt, roasted grains, and cereals. Aged port contributes delicate hints of nuts, while Pedro Ximenez sherry offers fine floral and herbal undertones. Lastly, French white oak adds exquisite spicy notes.
- REST AND MATURATION: Loco Ambar is granted the time it deserves, resting for six to eight months in each barrel under the watchful guidance of the Maestro Tequilero. During this period, tequila evolves, achieving a perfect and complex balance. As it matures, the amber hue reflects the amalgamation of the cooked agave, mineral notes, and herbal character inherited from Loco Blanco, resulting in an unprecedented quality that sets it apart from any other tequila.
- LOOK: Upon pouring; Loco Ambar presents itself as clean and bright, showcasing medium amber hues with hints of pale lemon that create golden highlights, completed with an olive halo.
- AROMA: The aroma of Loco Ambar is a captivating medley of scents that entices the senses. At the forefront, the cooked agave and caramel notes intertwine seamlessly. Delightful scents of honey, maple, propolis, or royal jelly add depth and intrigue. Herbal hints of fresh agave, green pepper, rosemary, and basil combine with sweet honey from cooked agave, pears, and fresh-picked apples, complemented by citrus touches of lime and green lemon. The minerality is reminiscent of stones, and wet earth lends an earthy balance, while floral notes of lilac and lavender add a touch of elegance. Spices like cinnamon, vanilla, cloves, coarse pepper, and cardamom add warmth and complexity, while lightly roasted and dehydrated fruits such as hazelnuts, roasted chestnuts, almonds, apples, apricots, and white plums create a delightful symphony of aromas.
- PALATE: Loco Ambar graces the palate with its silky and friendly demeanor, exuding warmth and harmony. The interplay of integrated and powerful flavors is met with a subtle spice that effortlessly harmonizes with the fruitiness and caramels. The tequila's finish is marked by an elegant finesse, mainly sweet but perfectly balanced with a subtle bitterness and mineral expressions that pay tribute to its unique terroir.
Indulge in the unparalleled experience that Loco Ambar offers—a true masterpiece that celebrates the art of tequila-making with its unparalleled complexity, exquisite flavors, and unrivaled quality.

What is the difference between Tequila & Mezcal?
Tequila is a type of mezcal, much like how scotch and bourbon are types of whiskey.
Tequila and mezcal are both types of agave-based spirits that are popular in Mexico, but there are some key differences between the two. Tequila is made exclusively from the blue agave plant, which is primarily grown in the area surrounding the city of Tequila, about 40 miles northwest of Guadalajara. Mezcal, on the other hand, can be made from any type of agave plant, and is often made using traditional, labor-intensive methods.
One of the most noticeable differences between tequila and mezcal is their flavor. Tequila is typically smooth and subtle, with hints of fruit and spices, while mezcal has a more complex, smoky flavor that comes from the roasting of the agave hearts before they are fermented and distilled.
Another difference between the two spirits is their production process. Tequila is typically made using modern industrial methods, while mezcal is often produced using traditional techniques that have been passed down for generations. This can give mezcal a more authentic, artisanal character.
In general, tequila is considered to be a more refined and sophisticated spirit, while mezcal is often viewed as a more rustic and traditional drink. Both are popular in Mexico and are enjoyed around the world, so the best way to decide which one you like is to try them both and see which one suits your tastes.
