About this destilado de agave
Maguey Melate Arroqueño / Madre Cuixe / Bicuixe is produced by Agustin Güendulain Maya in San Luis Amatlán. This was made with 40% Arroqueño, 40% Madre Cuixe, and 20% Bicuixe. He was the Melate Mezcalero of the Month for August 2019, and he recently won a top place in the Maestros del Mezcal competition in Spring 2020 with his Madre Cuixe expression.
Maguey Melate was founded on two ideas: 1) Artisanal agave spirits are amazing and should be shared with the world, and 2) The faster-cheaper economy is a harmful force for people, the environment, and now agave spirits.
They believe if mezcal (and agave spirits) can be understood and appreciated at its full potential, people will show their preference for quality artisanal mezcal that is sustainably and fairly sourced. By raising consumer consciousness on the origins of mezcal and educating enthusiasts on matters of quality and character, informed people will be empowered to ensure the future of mezcal. To do this, they’re reaching a large audience with an impactful message: KEEP MEZCAL ARTISANAL!
Maguey Melate is perhaps most well-known for their Mezcalero of the Month Club, which delivers artisanal small-batch agave spirits directly to the doors of consumers in the US and Mexico. In addition to the monthly spirits, they offer exclusive content and interviews with producers. Single releases are also available in the Maguey Melate shop.
