About this mezcal
Del Maguey Vida de Muertos is a special 45% ABV edition of Vida inspired by the batches of mezcal that are distilled in autumn by the family of Paciano Cruz Nolasco and shared for the celebration of Dia de los Muertos. It is produced using 100% Maguey Espadin (Agave angustifolia haw) that has grown for 7-8 years. Besides the ABV, another difference from Vida is that Each batch of Vida de Muertos is a limited center cut of the distillate that’s hand-selected by Paciano Cruz Nolasco. Vida de Muertos has aromas of tropical fruit with hints of spice. On the palate, there is a creamy texture with floral notes, green herbs, and poblano peppers.
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.
