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. 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 maguey Pizorra (agave 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.
