We want to offer our customers as many options as possible when shopping at DrinkUpNY. Unfortunately, including the original container--generally either a cardboard tube or box--adds significant cost to shipping. If you'd like to receive this packaging with your bottle, you can add it to your order for a small fee.

 
Description
 

Limited Release. One bottle per customer please.
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.

From 2000 through 2004 Jalisco experienced an agave shortage, forcing producers to purchase Espadin from one of Oaxaca's most powerful growers, Paciano Cruz Nolasco. They brought with them baby Maguey Azul to plant in case there was another shortage. Seven years later, Del Maguey San Luis del Rio Azul has been produced in very limited quantities from this same Weber Blue Agave, offering a unique opportunity to experience Jalisco tequila when it's been produced like an Oaxacan mezcal.

The baskets covering each bottle of Del Maguey San Luis del Rio Azul were hand woven by the women of Oaxaca. Each basket is a work of art and requires skill, dedication, and many hours to complete.
