From Oaxaca people to you!

Del Maguey is a brand that prides itself on its sustainability and focus on village producers. Taking their processes back to the ancient traditions of the Oaxaca people, Del Maguey ensures that these traditions are enshrined in their product. Sourcing their Tequila from individual villages, Del Maguey are able to support micro-economies in places where investment is needed. This also allows them to take a step back from the mass produced Tequila and present something unique to the market. Certified organic, this brand is incredibly authentic and somewhat timeless.  
Are you new to Pechuga Mezcal? OK, hang with us on this…. Del Maguey Pechuga Mezcal comes from a traditional line of “harvest season” Mezcals. You probably already know that Mezcal is awesome and would be called Tequila if it came from the right side of the tracks, right? But similar to the English and their taste for Gin, in Mexico they also take their Mezcal steeped in various, um … things. In the case of Del Maguey Pechuga Mezcal, that means that into the distillation tanks they add wild apples and plums, red plantains, a few almonds, a pineapple, a few pounds of uncooked rice, and … a raw chicken breast, bone in. 
With all of that distillation heat and premium alcohol, this thing gets “cooked” in the still all low-and-slow. So what you end up with is a agave-tasting Mezcal with a rich mouth feel and a salty-smoky meaty something that just don’t get every single day now do you? These are all rarely exported, but several fancy-schmancy high-end cocktail bars get some for their adventurous and discriminating clientele. This is an opportunity to wing it and try a little of that special brew for yourself. 
Smartass Corner:
There are actually several varieties of “harvest” Mezcals, including some made from pork, beef, and even wild rabbit! They are considered a delicacy of the Oaxaca area in Mexico.

Ratings & Reviews
One of the best spirits I’ve tasted. Smoky and meaty with a slightly oily mouth feel, this is better than any other tequila or mezcal I’ve had. If you like smoky whisky and don’t hate agave, you owe it to yourself to give this a try if you can find it.
So incredibly smooth. An amazing mezcal with very deep rich flavors.
