Del-Maguey-Vida-Mezcal
Del Maguey Vida San Luis Del Rio Mezcal is the perfect place to start when you want to try mezcal. This Mexican liquor is a little harder to find than tequila and other options, but Del Maguey has made its Vida Mezcal easy to get and at an entry-level price. It tastes delicious in mixed drinks and will introduce you to the world of mezcal. This mezcal is distilled twice and hand-crafted. Del Maguey uses wood-fired copper stills, which bring out fruity aromas and other sweet notes such as honey and vanilla. On your palate, experience cinnamon, banana, tangerine and even sandalwood. Wondering why you should opt for mezcal over tequila? Both mezcal and tequila are Mexican liquors distilled from the agave plant. Mezcal and tequila come from different regions in Mexico and often from different varieties of agave plant. Tequila must come from the Blue Agave plant, while mezcal can come from any agave plant. Most mezcal comes from Agave Espadin, including the Del Maguey Vida variety. Though you can try sipping Del Maguey Vida Mezcal to understand what mezcal is and how it should taste, this mezcal is designed to taste delicious in cocktails. The fruit notes and long finish make it perfect for fruitier mixes, such as a Sierra Madre Sunrise, which is made of mezcal plus Aperol, chocolate bitters and lemon juice. Try making a Mezcal Julep with basil and cranberry for a fruity twist on the classic. Remember to use quality juices and ripe fruits for best results. Buy Del Maguey Vida Mezcal online through Drizly and have it delivered directly to your door or pick it up in store.

Madre Mezcal is created at the Garcia Morales Ranch, nestled in the rolling hills of the Oaxacan Sierra. Produced by Jose Garcia Morales and his family, this blended mezcal is a traditional Zapotec recipe. Handmade in the hills of San Dionisio, Oaxaca, the family has been cultivating agave on their land in Oaxaca for centuries, creating high quality, small-batch artisanal mezcal. Madre Mezcal is distilled from agave Espadin and agave Cuishe using a family heirloom copper pot still. These agaves are roasted in an earthen pit, before being fermented with local well-water and wild mountain yeast. Madre has a hint of sweet smoke accentuated by earthy herbal notes of sage, and minerals on the palate, followed by a lingering floral finish. Agave Cuishe (or Cuixe) is a wild agave in the Karwinskii family that includes Madre-cuishe and Barril. It grows in a cylindrical, stalk-shaped piña, with leaves spreading at the top. It’s often slightly smaller than Madre-cuishe, and yields intensely flavored mezcal with high minerality and spice notes.

“A clean spirit with subtle smokiness.” GEM&BOLT is a clean spirit with a smooth profile and subtle botanical notes resulting in the perfect mezcal. GEM&BOLT is a small batch joven mezcal made with perfectly ripened, late harvest, 100% espadin agave from the central valleys of Oaxaca, Mexico. GEM&BOLT is deeply informed by hundreds of years of tradition, using no artificial yeasts, additives or chemicals. The pĨna is slowly wood-roasted in conic earthen pits and mashed with traditional tahona stone. It then goes through a natural fermentation in oak vats. The first distillation is in small copper stills and then rested (not aged) in oak barrels for 3-6 months. During the second distillation, using our proprietary stainless-steel copper alloy still, the damiana herb is introduced as the agave spirit’s vapors pass through the botanical basket releasing the damiana’s essential oils. This process highlights herbal notes of chamomile, balanced by a well-rounded roasted agave profile distinct to artisanal mezcals from San Dionisio Ocotepec. Damiana is a traditional Mexican herb long-revered by the Maya and Aztec for its myriad of mood-elevating properties. This beloved heart-opening herb perfectly complements GEM&BOLT resulting in a unique composition of biosphere and natural elements promising only the highest quality mezcal.

A slightly smoky, yet herbaceous undertone rests on the center of the palate, while citrus and floral notes from the Barril are introduced and strengthened by the warm viscose finish of the Mexicano. This is a light and easy sipping mezcal, which will delight and surprise you with its complex lingering finish. Espadín The Espadín agave, known as the genetic Mother of the Blue Weber Agave, is used to produce tequila, and is also the predominant agave used in mezcal production. Unique in itself, the characteristics of this agave showcase the aromas of wet earth, a rich smokiness on the mid-palate, and a finish reminiscent of wild flowers. Barril This thick-foliaged, wild agave, often used as fencing to divide land in Oaxaca, intensifies the complexity of this mezcal. As citrus and floral notes arise, hints of green peppers compliment the nose. The palate is a delightful balance of citrus and creamy banana. Mexicano The Mexicano agave thrives in the moist environment of lower elevations. This wild agave can grow quite large and is usually harvested when close to ten years of age. The concentration of sugar in the fully mature agave produces an extremely powerful mezcal. The palate is distinctively herbaceous and earthy with a long lasting finish in the mouth.

Created from Espadin agave, El Buho Mezcal is handcrafted at a traditional artisan distillery in the heart of Oaxaca. Mature agave plants are carefully selected, then slowly roasted for one week in an underground stone pit with local mesquite wood. The roasted agave pieces are crushed on a traditional Tohona stone mill, well water is added to the resulting aguamiel, and the mixture fermented for a few days. The mash is then double distilled in a fifth generation alembic still and packaged in a distinctive bottle featuring "el buho" himself. El Buho Mezcal is now available in the US thanks to Brooklyn-based company, Henry Steele Imports. An inviting nose of sweet agave, vanilla and delicate smoke leads to a rich, full-flavored palate with herbaceous notes of roasted agave, sweet potato, vanilla and earth. The finish is long, spicy and peppery, enhanced by an elegant touch of smoke.

Los-Vecinos-Del-Campo-Espadin-Mezcal
Los Vecinos Del Campo honors centuries old distilling traditions of Oaxaca and the people whose families have produced these rich spirits for generations. After growing & maturing for 7- 20 years, the local grown agave is harvested by hand. The agave hearts are then slow-roasted underground for 4-7 days to develop the sultry, smoky-sweet flavor profile. After roasting, the piñas are crushed using a stone molino, then naturally fermented in a wooden vat for 7-15 days- depending on time of year. These artisanal mezcals are then double distilled using copper pot stills. The end products are sophisticated yet wild mezcals of the highest quality that taste of the generations of expertise behind them. In partnership with Carmen Villarreal and Casa San Matias, Los Vecinos works to promote sustainability and support to the people and communities who create these exquisite mezcals. Los Vecinos Del Campo translates to “Neighbors of the Field” and in the tiny villages of Oaxaca, Mexico where these artisanal mezcals are created, neighbors are family. Production description: • Agave: 100% Espadin • Serving: Savor and sip neat or mix into an array of cocktails. This 90-proof mezcal stands up well! • Appearance: Void of color; sediment-free clarity. • Aroma: Powerful aromas of baked pineapple and canned pineapple juice have an earthy core.

Mezcal Vago - Olla de Barro Ensamble from Sola de Vega has a soft bouquet of pine needles and fertile earth. Its full body has an essence of charred cinnamon and finishes with notes of pumpkin and chestnuts. Tio Rey crafts his mezcal in Sola De Vega, a region famous for its use of olla de barro (clay pots) in distillation. His palenque sits ideally on a fertile hill near a fresh mountain spring. His water source, rich soil, and ancient methods yield rich and satisfying mezcals. Each unique blend of agaves he creates will have a different flavor. The blends include various amounts of Espadin, Mexicano, Coyote, Arroqueño and Sierra Negra. Each batch will be clearly labeled as to its content so we might learn a thing or two from this master.
