About this mezcal

Del Maguey San Pablo Ameyaltepec is also known as the Papalote de Puebla and is part of the Del Maguey Vino de Mezcal collection. This mezcal is made by mezcalero Aurelio Gonzalez Tobon. Though Puebla has a rich tradition of producing mezcal, the state just received its Denomination of Origin recently so that it could begin to legally call its agave distillates “mezcal.” This is a very floral mezcal that has notes of spice, lilac and tropical fruit. The agave Tobala gives this mezcal bright citrus notes that balance with its creamy texture.

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:

Sweet and fruity on the nose. Rich aromas! Floral palate that’s also full and rich with deep, dark fruit and light touches of pollen and fresh rain. This is my favorite Del Maguey on the market. They’ve really outdone themselves with this one.

  • Overall:

Very unique. Pineapple sweetness in the nose. Super smooth and light with some nice spice. Finish is heavy on Mango flavors. Delicious

  • Overall:

Beautiful, exotic, elegant, fragrant. Sweet and savory tumble/swirl/dance, soft caresses crisp, the finish is delicately sweet, creamy, and floral. Once the drinking vessel is empty, with alcohol and complicating flavor dichotomies out of the way, the fragrance of lilac flowers refill the formerly empty space. There’s not a single harsh note to San Pablo Ameyaltepec, nor trace of Cupreata’s characteristic copper touch; this is a very delicious mezcal.
