About this destilado de agave
Maguey Melate Madre Cuishe from Silvestre Jimenez Peralta Maguey was originally released as the May 2022 Mezcalero of the Month Club agave spirit. Silvestre works with an agavero, who harvests all the agave for his mezcal. In exchange for this agave, Silvestre splits each batch 50/50 with the agavero. Batch SIL-MAD-001 from October 2020 represents an entire batch, meaning that half of it was purchased from Silvestre and the other half from the agavero.
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.
