Del Maguey Vida Mezcal
About Del Maguey Vida Mezcal
Del Maguey Vida Mezcal is a handcrafted and artisanal spirit made from 100% organic Espadin agave grown in Oaxaca, Mexico. What sets this mezcal apart is its unique production process, which involves roasting the agave hearts in an earthen pit oven before being distilled in small copper stills. This gives the spirit its distinctive smoky flavor and aroma, along with a complex and nuanced taste.
“The fruit-forward, easy sipping Del Maguey VIDA is an approachable introduction to the spirit” - Wall Street Journal
A nose of fruit aromatics, a hint of honey, vanilla and roasted agave. The palate offers ginger, cinnamon, burnt sandalwood, banana and tangerine, with a long, soft finish.

- Unexpected: Use instead of gin in a Negroni
Anders Erickson, "A mezcal I keep coming back to - an approachable amount of smoke that's wonderful in a cocktail."
This mezcal is made the original, handcrafted way, employing the same rustic process that's been used in this region for more than 500 years.
Espadin agaves are harvested from the Oaxacan region of San Luis del Rio. The agaves are roasted for up to 8 days and this is followed by an 8-10 day wild fermentation. Finally, it is twice distilled in wood-fired copper stills, then bottled.
Overall, Del Maguey Vida Mezcal is a unique and complex spirit that offers a smoky and flavorful experience. Its traditional production methods and artisanal approach make it a standout choice for mezcal enthusiasts and cocktail lovers alike.
