About this mezcal
Del Maguey Espadin Especial is made by the same producer of the Del Maguey Tobala and the Del Maguey Wild Tepextate. Del Maguey has never formally released the name or the information of this famed mezcalero, but it is widely understood that he is a master of the trade. This mezcal is part of the Del Maguey Vino de Mezcal series. The first release of this mezcal was limited to just 330 bottles and was given to people in Oaxaca, New York, Boston, and California. If you’ve ever seen this, you’re one of the lucky few. Espadin Especial is floral with a slight note of vanilla, citrus and a tropical note of caramelized pineapple.
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.
