About this destilado de agave

Maguey Melate Bicuixe from Felipe Cortes was first released as the November 2019 Mezcalero of the Month agave spirit. Felipe and the Cortes family are well-known in the Miahuatlan region and throughout the state of Oaxaca. His mezcal has been featured in many of Oaxaca City’s finest mezcalerias, including Mezcaloteca.

Maguey Melate

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.

I got strong melon flavors from this. Cantaloupe, honeydew, candy corns, vanilla, spearmint, eucalyptus, sea salt, creamy mouthfeel. Very tasty.

Fresh and sweet aromas on this. Hints of wildflowers, pollen, honeysuckle, and cornbread. The palate’s loaded with dark fruit (blueberries, papaya, and cantaloupe). More notes of vanilla and lavender. Silky mouthfeel. This stuff is awesome.
