This could be the most authentic, old-school Mezcal we’ve ever tasted… and it’s really good.

Ron Cooper of Taos, New Mexico, loves Mezcal. He loves everything about it from the choice agave plants used to the local "palenques" (distilleries) brewing up this sacred elixir. "Maguey" is the Aztec word for "agave." So he established Del Maguey, spending his days searching the back roads of Mexico to discover the small family-farm distilleries making Mezcal with local flair. He bottles up their local Spirits and sells these artisanal releases to a grateful public.

Wait until you get a look at these specs.

Del Maguey Arroqueño Mezcal is a very limited release from Santa Catarina Minas — a tiny municipality in a mountain valley pass in south-central Oaxaca. It’s made from rare, semi-wild Arroqueño agave that are hand-harvested and slow-roasted over stone in a covered earthen pit for three days and mashed with wooden sticks. It’s fermented naturally with air-born yeasts for thirty days and twice distilled in a hand-formed clay still using bamboo tubing (!) and cut to 49% ABV with local spring water to yield just 360 bottles.

It just does NOT get any more authentic than that.

While Mezcal is produced all across Mexico, most of the Mezcal we see is produced in the state of Oaxaca. Interestingly, over 70% of Mezcal is made from the Espadín agave—even though more than 20 types of agave are used to make Mezcal.
All Tequila is Mezcal, but not all Mezcal is Tequila.
Founder Ron Cooper was one of the pioneering members of the Light and Space art scene in the 1960s. He calls Del Maguey “liquid art”.

Espadín. That word means “sword” in Spanish because the leaves look like a mass of swords projecting out of the plant. Espadín Mezcals are most common because it has been the easiest agave to cultivate.
