About this mezcal

Del Maguey Madrecuixe is made in San Luis del Rio with agave Madrecuixe, which is a wild tall cylindrical maguey with leaves that grow from the ground up. Notes of banana leaf, green papaya, and fresh cut bamboo, give way to tropical fruits of mango and pineapple. This extremely rare wild mezcal is silky, elegant, and medium-bodied, with a long, dry, clean finish.

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.

  • Overall:

Decent, fruity mezcal, that falls a bit short: green melon and cooked cucumber in the nose. Round and sweet in the mouth, baked aromas and sweet, canned fruit. However, the aromas seem a bit subdued. Unfortunately, there’s a slight disturbing plastic bitterness in the finish. (6 VIII 18, Spitz Bar Zürich, lot MAD-151)
