About sarah kennan

"Leonista" which means "Lion energy" is the first 100% Karoo agave spirit in the country made in the traditional Mexican way. The production process follows an age old recipe used in Mexico to make Agave spirits like Mezcal that requires smoke and fire, hence Leonista has a delicious smokey flavor. The founder went to Mexico on a research tour and learnt the process from the maestro distillers there. Since it is not made in Mexico it cannot be called Mezcal or Tequila but it is essentially a local Mezcal made using South African Karoo agave that has been growing there for hundreds of years.  Leonista is 100% USDA certified organic and is made for a conscious consumer who demands something of a higher quality, handmade and if treated with respect has energy giving properties and has less harmful effect on the body.  We also strive to have a positive impact on the world around us so a percentage of every bottle sold goes towards supporting African land and ocean conservation.
