All about making whisky
Produced in the mezcal capital of Santiago Matatlan, Derrumbes expresses all the power and exuberance of an artisanal mezcal. Elegant, earthy and meaty, it nevertheless remains very well-balanced, giving the agave a stunning backdrop against which to express its notes of salt, pepper, citrus and fresh fruits.
A mezcal that showcases the terroir and artisanal manufacturing methods of the Oaxaca region. Derrumbes N°1 is made solely from angustifolia agave (espadin) by the Mateo family, who have been growing the plant for three generations now. The result is a characteristic and expressive Derrumbes. Petrol, tarmac and burnt rubber emerge on the nose, giving way to a herbaceous, menthol aspect that unfurls refreshingly on the palate, followed by a retronasal olfaction marked by aromas of petrol and smoke that linger. A must for thrill-seekers! Profile: intense, round. Earthy, peaty, animalistic and mineral (manganese). Rural and rustic (straw, cattle). Heady florals (rhododendron, clove, daisy).
