Del Maguey Tobala has a sweet, fruity nose, with a mango and cinnamon taste and long, extra smooth finish.
Del Maguey (pronounced ma–gay), Single Village Mezcal was founded in 1995 by internationally renowned artist and mezcal visionary, Ron Cooper. Ron introduced the world to previously unavailable artisanal mezcal produced the original handcrafted way. Through deep cultural relationships with Zapotec Mexican Indian producers in the remote villages of Oaxaca and Puebla, Mexico, Del Maguey harnesses ancient, original organic processes. Combining these methods with varying micro-climates and terroir gives each creation its own unique, rich, sweet and smoky character. Every product in our collection is made by individual family palenqueros (producers) in old-style villages. We are the first producer to credit each product after the village where our liquid is made. When you see our beautiful green bottles you know it’s Del Maguey.
Para todo mal, Mezcal, y para todo bien, también.
"For everything bad, Mezcal, and for everything good as well." Most often consumed straight or with salt, chilis and an orange, lemon, or lime, Mezcal is an agave-based spirit whose production methods vary widely depending on the region, traditions and preferences of the producer. Rather than boiling or steaming the agave, which is done in Tequila production, Mezcal is made by cooking the agave in wood-fired pits before fermentation. Consequently, Mezcal is often characterized by smoky nuances, which are a product of this alternative production method.
