Del Maguey

San Luis Del Rio Mezcal

Found at Harvey Nichols & Co Ltd

Del Maguey is a unique, artisanal, family run operation boasting a collection of fine, rare, unblended Mezcals. All expressions are made from 100% Espadin agave, and are produced according to traditional processes dating back four hundred years. In style, Mezcal can be said to resemble a cross between Tequila and Islay whisky, with a pit oven roasting process imparting a distinctive smokiness to the raw spirit. Each Del Maguey release bears the name of the village where it is produced and reflects the personality, culture and history of the specific location. Del Maguey Mezcals are characteristically smokey, complex and authentic in style, and are only available in miniscule quantities. This particular expression represents a special edition bottling of Del Maguey single village Mezcal, distilled in San Luis Del Rio in Oaxaca. One of only 1530 bottles released, this special Mezcal was aged for 2976 hours in ex Pappy van Winkle whisky casks before being bottled. This resting period in the barrels from this legendary producer has imparted a different layer of complexity, as well as bringing down the ABV of the spirit from its original 41%. A fantastic release that is full of character, this is an essential addition to any serious Mezcal collection. This Del Maguey San Luis Del Rio Mezcal is £18.57 per 100.00ml
