About this mezcal
Delirio Joven is made at the palenque of mezcalero Fernando Santibañez. The palenque is located in Santiago Matatlán, about 56 km away from the city of Oaxaca, in the district of Tlacolula, at an altitude of 1460m above sea level. The agave used in Mezcal Delirio Joven is cooked in traditional stones ovens and naturally fermented in pine vats. It is distilled in copper stills.
Mezcal Delirio de Oaxaca is handcrafted under the supervision of master distiller Fernando Santibañez. After 25 years of working for large international companies mass producing rum, brandy and tequila, Fernando decided to return to his roots in Oaxaca to make mezcal. His goal is to bring this legendary spirit to consumers around the world. Fernando personally oversees every step of the process to ensure the final product consistently meets his defined specifications. Delirio de Oaxaca reflects Fernando’s passion for making spirits by hand and with care. He is also responsible for Mezcal Xicaru and others.

Tried at a tequila bar in Austin. It’s smoky enough and distinctly espadín, but lacks finish, spice, and complexity. 2.5 / 5
