About this destilado de agave

Maguey Melate Tequilana from Victor & Emanuel Ramos was originally released as the July 2021 Mezcalero of the Month Club agave spirit. Victor Ramos and his son Emanuel are both very well known throughout Oaxaca. This spirit, made with Agave tequilana, is a rare release from this dynamic duo who are highly regarded for their work with Agave karwinskii that grows in more abundance in the region.

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.

This is just beautiful. Light, herbal, and floral this is a real crowd pleaser. What a great example of what Agave Azul can taste like!! Apricots, frangipani flowers, fresh ripe mango, canned pears, lavender, and lemon verbena. I can already tell this bottle is going to go quick.

Lot RAM-TEQ-001: Spirits like this help me understand how/why old school tequilas became popular. This is subtle, complex, and beautiful. Sweet and floral aromas of spearmint, lilac, raw sugar cane, lavender, and a bit of lemon zest. The palate is balanced with notes of fresh citrus, tobacco, spearmint, rosemary, and lemon. Fantastic!
