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.

Very deep and dark, goes wonderfully with spicy, roasted vegetables. The more I sipped the more I respected this mezcal. As Jonny said “heavy and animalistic” it’s just the way it is.

Bold flavors. Lots of dark fruit. A bit grassy. Overall a bit heavy and dark. Very fruity. Not sure I needed a whole bottle but I’m enjoying the pour. Lot 15-1.

Batch TOBA-151. Strong tobacco aroma at bottle opening. The palate has more tobacco, leather, tanned hides…very John Wayne….heavy and animalistic. A little dark. Good finish. This is really nice and it’s too bad it’s only available in Europe.
