About this destilado de agave

Maguey Melate Espadin Chacaleño from Carlos Ángulo Rios was originally released as the April 2021 Mezcalero of the Month Club agave spirit. This spirit was produced in El Platanar Topia, Durango with cultivated 9-12 year old maguey Chacaleño (Agave angustifolia).

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.

Batch CAR-CHO-001, 49.9%
First Mezcal in a little while, so bear with me.
nose: distant sage, fresh concrete, slate, white chocolate? one of the more subdued i’ve had from MM
Taste: orange peel, salted watermelon rind, salt spray, slate, white pepper.

Pulled back and extremely clean; the quality is undoubtedly there. There is perhaps a slight burn, but otherwise drinks smoothly. Not the most interesting or unique from MM, but tasty nonetheless
