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.

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.

Agave Madrecuixe is one of several varieties in the Agave Karwinskii family. Between the different sub-varieties, there are different ratios of stalk to piña, which can affect the final flavor. The starches in the stalk are structured differently, such that they do not always break down completely during the roasting process. As such, mezcals from these varieties can result in mezcales that do have a core of agave sweetness that most connoisseurs will recognize, but there is also an overall dry or starchy quality to the mezcales that can linger on the palate. Madrecuixe typically has a larger piña than most, resulting in mezcales that do have that starchy finish, but a touch more sweetness and body than a more narrow plant like a Cuixe.

El-Jolgorio-Pechuga-Mezcal
Pechuga is a celebratory style of mezcal made from agave Espadín. It is the only El Jolgorio mezcal that does not take its name from the species of agave used in production. To make this mezcal, local fruits, nuts, herbs, and spices are added to the still on the second distillation, along with a whole, raw turkey that is hung inside the still cap. Culturally, mezcal Pechuga has great significance, made only for very special occasions, such as weddings, baptisms, or holidays, and as such, made with a great deal of love and care in order to capture the feeling of the mezcalero. Today, due to their popularity in the marketplace, many brands are producing Pechuga-style mezcals using a wide range of ingredients. ABOUT EL JOLGORIO Mezcal forms an important part of rituals, ceremonies, and festivities in villages in our homeland of southern Mexican state of Oaxaca. These celebrations - also known as Jolgorios - always involve mezcal, a drink that spans cultures and bonds families. Fifteen unique El Jolgorio Mezcals are made from different species and varieties of wild-harvested and semi-cultivated agaves by master distillers in remote villages in the Central Valleys region of Oaxaca. Each El Jolgorio label signifies a different agave variety, with each tiny batch released in sequentially numbered editions. Due to the scarcity of wild agaves and a commitment to sustainability, the batches rotate, meaning each new edition might be produced from different regional producers within the tightly-knit collective. Every label bears the name of the distiller, village, age of agave at harvest, and number of bottles, to connect the drinker with the place of origin and the families behind the spirit.
