DEL MAGUEY

Distillery
Founded in 1995
Del Maguey (pronounced ma–gay) Single Village Mezcal was founded in 1995, and they’ve been one of the most innovative and trail-blazing international spirits brands since.

Their founder, Ron Cooper, is largely credited for the current growing popularity of Mezcal on the international market. His dedication to Mezcal and the country of Mexico, where Del Maguey is produced, has helped to dispel many of the worm-in-bottle and other negative stereotypes that surrounded Mezcal for years.

Del Maguey is produced in several different small villages throughout the states of Oaxaca and Puebla, Mexico. Each release comes from a single village and many expressions are made with agave sub-varieties that are endemic only to the isolated mountain regions where they are produced.

Every product in their collection is made by individual family palenqueros (producers) in old-style villages. The families making this Mezcal have been doing so for generations, and they utilize the knowledge that has been passed down from those before them.

All Del Maguey is made using the same traditional Zapotec handmade practices that have been used in Mezcal production for hundreds of years.
