About this mezcal
Agave Jabali is harvested from craggy rocks and cliffs and is known to be difficult to distill. Jabali is Spanish word for “wild boar” because the leaves on the maguey Jabali planet look like the teeth of a boar. This is another release in the Vino de Mezcal series from their secret mezcalero using only sustainable harvested wild Jabali magueyes. The agave hearts are roasted in the earth and buried for two weeks, then ground using a horse drawn stone , and finally fermented with air-borne microbes and then double-distilled. This mezcal was named Best Agave Spirit at Cocktails Spirits 2017 in Paris.
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.
