100% KAROO AGAVE SPIRIT.
Meaning “white” in Spanish, this one is smooth and smokey. It is an un-aged variant in the pride characterized by the smooth but distinctly smokey flavour and is the closest adaptation to an authentic Mezcal.
Meaning “aged” or “rested” is mellow and aged and is our senior member of the pride. It is rested for 3 - 6 months in oak barrels resulting in a smooth, sweeter flavour with hints of smoky finish.
Honey Reposado: Wild and buzzy - the
sweetest lioness of the pride. Infused with wild Cape honey, our honey reposado is subtly sweet with hints of a smokey finish.
Mellow and aged. Rested for 6 - 8 months in old brandy, american oak barrels that give it a smooth mouth feel with notes of caramel and chocolate.
Leonista means “place of the lion” and is the first 100% Karoo agave spirit in South Africa made the traditional way.
The production process follows an age-old recipe used in Mexico to make agave spirits like Mezcal. It requires smoke
and fire, hence Leonista’s delicious smokey flavour, similar to that of a Mezcal.
100% agave spirits are the most energy-fueling of all the alcohols if treated with respect.
Leonista has taken the time to create expertly crafted cocktails that respect the ingredients and balance of our Spirit.
