Leonista means “place of the lion” and is the first 100% Karoo agave spirit in South Africa made the traditional way by Sarah Kennan, Capetonian and spirited alchemist who 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.

​Also good to note that 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 Mezcal.
