Delve into the rich traditions of mezcal with Del Maguey San Luis Del Rio Mezcal Tequila. Crafted in the remote mountains of Oaxaca, Mexico, this artisanal spirit embodies the essence of its terroir and the expertise of its mezcaleros.

At the heart of Del Maguey San Luis Del Rio Mezcal is the espadín agave, hand-harvested at peak maturity. These precious agaves are roasted in earthen pit ovens over hot rocks, infusing the mezcal with smoky, earthy flavors. After fermentation with wild yeasts, the mezcal undergoes double distillation in traditional copper pot stills, resulting in a spirit of unparalleled quality and complexity.

Upon pouring, the mezcal reveals a golden hue, reminiscent of the sun-drenched landscapes of Oaxaca. The aroma captivates with notes of roasted agave, citrus zest, and a hint of wild herbs. On the palate, expect a harmonious interplay of flavors, from the sweetness of cooked agave to the subtle smokiness and a touch of peppery spice.

Del Maguey San Luis Del Rio Mezcal Tequila is best enjoyed neat, allowing you to savor its full spectrum of flavors and aromas. Alternatively, use it to craft mezcal-forward cocktails that celebrate its unique character and depth.

Whether enjoyed on its own or mixed into cocktails, Del Maguey San Luis Del Rio Mezcal Tequila offers a taste of authentic Oaxacan mezcal craftsmanship. Elevate your drinking experience and savor the spirit of tradition with every sip. Cheers to the artistry and heritage of mezcal.

Distillery Information

Del Maguey Las Milpas is produced by Anastacio Cruz Antonio and his sons Rigoberto, Abel and Pedro in the remote village of Las Milpas. The village is located high above San Dionisio Ocotopec in Oaxaca. The palenque is nestled among the cornfields and overlooks rolling pastures.
Each of Del Maguey's single-village mezcals is made by individual family producers in remote villages in Oaxaca and Pueblo using 400-year-old Zapotec methods.
The distinctive, vibrantly coloured artworks that adorns Del Maguey labels are by Kenneth Price (16/Feb/1935 – 24/Feb/12), an artist famous for his abstract fired clay shapes intricately painted with multiple layers brightly coloured paints.
Introduced in 2010, Del Maguey's mezcal 'Vida' is a single-village, organic mezcal made from Espadín agaves. Agave comes from the village of San Luis del Rio in Oaxaca; they're roasted for 3-8 days, followed by an 8-10 day wild fermentation. Distilled twice in wood-fired copper stills.
Ron Cooper founded Del Maguey in 1995, at least a decade before the beginning of the Mezcal Renaissance we are living in now.
