DEL MAGUEY Puebla 47%
Mezcal, Mexico / Oaxaca, 70cl, Ref: 5919
Del Maguey brings you this special limited edition. In spite of the fact that Puebla has one of the oldest distilling traditions in Mexico, the state was just added to the Denomination of Origin of Mezcal in December, 2015. Therefore the agave distillates of Puebla can now legally be called Mezcal. Agaves are growing in this semi-tropical valley between two famous volcanoes of Puebla. The twelve to eighteen year old agave are roasted in an earthen oven below ground, fermented in the open air with ambient yeasts, and distilled to proof in a single distillation that passes through copper plates in a resaque (or reflux) style alembic still. This is an incredibly floral spirit, with spicy carnation and lilac notes balancing ripe, tropically sweet fruit. This unique and surprising spirit will equally please connoisseurs and aficionados.
Style : light and transparent.

- The brand
Del Maguey is a collection of fine, rare and 100% agave mezcals distilled by families in the State of Oaxaca. Each mezcal carries the name of the village in which it is produced. The “palanquero” warms hot stones in a hole dug in the ground, then prepares the hearts of agave which are placed inside and roasted over the heat for a several days. They are then ground in a stone mill in order to collect the mash which ferments naturally. Distillation is carried out in wood-fired clay or copper stills. Del Maguey can lay claim to over 400 years of tradition. All of its products are certified “organic”.
