Drinks Distilled X the Lost Explorer Is Now Live!
We couldn't think of a better way to pay tribute to Day of the Dead this week than to launch The Lost Explorer Mezcal on Drinks Distilled!
Handpicked by Spirits Guide, Kat Stanley-Whyte - bartender at The Savoy's American Bar and confessed agave-fanatic, we have created some brand new gift sets to commemorate the launch.
You can also purchase The Lost Explorer Espadín in two different sizes - 700ml or 200ml and, for the entire month of November, we are giving away a free gift with the purchase of every 700ml bottle, to help you fulfil The Lost Explorer's motto to sip curiously.

About The Lost Explorer Espadín
Kat explains: "The Lost Explorer Mezcal is a core staple to both my home bar and back bar due to its pure deliciousness and the fact it’s a pine introduction to what mezcal can be - not just smoke!
This mezcal has a soft, subtle spiciness with an underlying smokiness on the initial aroma, that then develops on the palate into a surprisingly fresh, green, earthy flavour profile with a touch of herbaceousness, allowing the true cooked agave notes to shine."
Kat’s Suggested Serves
Kat suggests: "If it’s a particularly warm environment, serving this mezcal with one block of ice and a spritz of discarded grapefruit zest across the top really knocks it out of the park. However, the best part about The Lost Explorer Espadín is that when added to cocktails it sings, especially as a replacement for the rye in a perfect Manhattan or the gin in a twist on the Negroni."
Shop Kat's Suggestions
We've created a Mezcal Negroni kit in honour of Kat's suggested serve, featuring a 700ml bottle of The Lost Explorer Espadín, a crystal rocks glass and stainless steel jigger and spoon set. Don't forget you can choose from either our classic or brand new Christmas packaging, and every order is accompanied by a free gift note and recipe card.
The Stocking Filler: The Curious Copitas Kit
The perfect Christmas treat for intrepid explorers who like to sip their mezcal neat. This set features an adventure-friendly sized 200ml bottle of The Lost Explorer Espadín, two Lost Explorer handcrafted ceramic copitas from Oaxaca, plus a free recipe card with Kat's insights and suggested serves.
Free Gift With Purchase
To celebrate the launch of The Lost Explorer Espadín, every full-sized bottle purchased before the end of November will be accompanied by two sustainable copitas upcycled from agave fibre.
We've added Kat's Mezcal Negroni recipe to our recipe library, alongside some of The Lost Explorer's most adventurous serves to inspire you.
