About this mezcal

The Del Maguey Crema de Mezcal has a nose of roasted maguey, with vanilla and pear, creamy almond, apple, coffee, pineapple pallate; and a long sweet smoky orange finish. As the five day maguey roast is uncovered, the Miel of a few of the sweetest magueys is pressed out. Ten percent Miel de Maguey is added to ninety percent San Luis del Rio resulting in an 80 proof Crema de Mezcal.

Del Maguey Mezcal

Del Maguey (pronounced ma–gay), Single Village Mezcal was founded in 1995 by internationally renowned artist and Mezcal visionary, Ron Cooper. Ron introduced the world to previously unavailable 100% certified organic, artisanal Mezcal produced the original handcrafted way. Through deep cultural relationships with Zapotec Mexican Indian producers in the remote villages of Oaxaca, Mexico, Del Maguey harnesses ancient, original organic processes. Combining these methods with varying micro-climates and terroir gives each creation its own unique, rich, sweet and smoky character. Every product in their collection is made by individual family palenqueros (producers) in old-style villages. They are the first producer to credit each product after the village where our liquid is made. When you see their beautiful green bottles you know it’s Del Maguey. Most of Del Maguey's mezcals are distilled to proof, so the ABV will vary slightly between batches.

In June of 2017, international spirits company, Pernod Ricard, purchased majority stake in the company. Del Maguey is now part of their portfolio that includes Jameson Whiskey, Absolute Vodka, and Havana Club Rum.

The worst mezcal I have tried. WAYYY too sweet. The flavors are actually nice which makes it a shame the so much agave is added.

This mezcal contains 10% agave syrup. The sweetness is a bit much for my taste; sipping it just makes me want to drink other Del Maguey espadins. The bottle does mention that this mezcal would make a “great margarita” or enjoyable drizzled over fruits or desserts. This mezcal is fairly inexpensive and doesn’t bill itself as a top-shelf sipping mezcal so don’t expect that if you pick up a bottle. I have a 2015 Batch #3 bottle that I will occasionally take out for tastings or when friends are over.

I should probably follow the advice on the back of the bottle and try it in a margarita next time!

Too sweet for my liking. For those looking for a smooth, easy mezcal sip, not recommended.
