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. Newer batches may also contain small amounts of agave Pizorra (Marmorata), which is part of the same genetic family as Tepextate.

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.

lot PUE-161. took a while to come around after opening (where it was boozy and abrasive), but it’s settled into quite the mezcal. big time ripe tropical fruit tempered by woody notes and rich earthiness on the palate. finish gets a touch medicinal. almost a 5. neck and neck with the arroqueno for favorite in the DM range.

this is very good.its light and i got the floral and tropical fruit notes.no harhness and very refined.very little hint of alcohol.it is as close as it can get to 5 stars but fell a little short.the finish was sweet but vanished way too fast.i like a mezcal that lingers a little or alot if it has great flavor.this was the same effect i got from the koch mexicano.incredible flavor and then-poof.gone.no more. thats why i am a fan of the vago brand.tio rey and emidgio make mezcals that linger with lovely complex flavors.dont get me wrong.this is still a very good mezcal!

The San Pablo Ameyaltepec was one of the first certified mezcal’s exported from the state of Puebla and the producer is the newest member of the Del Maguey family. This mezcal will get you excited about the talented mezcaleros in Puebla. It has complex and composed flavors of pear, tropical fruits like mango and pineapple, and some candied sweetness. I’ve enjoyed it a few times and like it more with each subsequent tasting. Even after trying a newly opened bottle, there is no bite, just a touch of sweet vinegar. Lot 16-1.

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.

Beautiful, exotic, elegant, fragrant. Sweet, savory, soft, yet crisp, the finish is delicately sweet, creamy, and floral. I love the aroma of blooming lilacs remaining in an empty glass. There’s not a single harsh note to San Pablo Ameyaltepec; this is a very delicious mezcal.
