Del Maguey Single Village Mezcals are created in extremely small quantities following traditional production methods developed in the 16th century. The hearts of the agave are roasted over hot stones in a put in the ground for three to five days while covered in earth, ground to a mash using horse-powered stone mills, and then naturally fermented in wooden vats. The spirit is then created using two slow distillations in wood-fired clay or copper pot stills. The result is unlike any spirit you have experienced before. Smoky, earthy, and stunningly complex, each bottle is a unique experience.
Del Maguey Minero is crafted in Santa Catarina Minas, a village with an 5,500 foot elevation and an arid, semi-tropical micro-climate. This village's mezcal displays sweeter flavors of vanilla and roasted pineapple along with hints of leather and earth. Abundant ripe fruit lasts through the smooth finish.
