DEL MAGUEY San Luis del Rio Stitzell Weller Finish
This mellow mezcal is the result of a passion for experimentation and a quest for new flavours. Local spices, fruits and citrus fruits from San Luis Del Rio harmonise with the mellow notes of the American bourbon barrels in which it is left to mature.
Del Maguey is a collection of fine, rare and 100% agave mezcals distilled by families in the State of Oaxaca. Each mezcal carries the name of the village in which it is produced. The “palanquero” warms hot stones in a hole dug in the ground, then prepares the hearts of agave which are placed inside and roasted over the heat for a several days. They are then ground in a stone mill in order to collect the mash which ferments naturally. Distillation is carried out in wood-fired clay or copper stills. Del Maguey can lay claim to over 400 years of tradition. All of its products are certified “organic”.
