Agua Mágica Mezcal Ensamble: A Celebration of Heritage and Craftsmanship

Originating from the bountiful soils of San Juan del Río in Oaxaca, Agua Mágica Mezcal Ensamble is an homage to the artisanal skills of fifth-generation mezcalero Rogelio Juan Hernandez. This Joven mezcal is a harmonious blend of two distinct agave varieties, Maguey Espadin, and Maguey Tobalá, reflecting the richness and complexity of the land from which it is born.

The Craft: A Timed Symphony of Nature and Skill

The crafting process begins with Rogelio Juan Hernandez carefully selecting Maguey Espadin (Agave angustifolia) and Maguey Tobalá (Agave potatorum). Once selected, these plants are baked in a traditional earth oven for 24 hours and allowed to rest for one to two days. Following this, a horse-drawn tahona crushes the plants, leading to a natural fermentation process in wooden vats over 7-8 days, nourished by the region's freshwater. Finally, a double distillation in copper stills produces a mezcal of unparalleled complexity and purity.

A Palette of Nature's Bounty

Agua Mágica Mezcal Ensamble encapsulates the very soul of its native region, San Juan del Río. Each sip offers a complex array of flavors, reflecting the confluence of the local river, the tropical climate, and the mineral-rich soil. The unique flavor profile boasts notes of minerals, tropical fruits, almonds, and herbal undertones, offering a multi-layered drinking experience.

More Than a Beverage, A Legacy

Much like the alebrijes of Oaxaca—complex wooden carvings handed down across generations—the tale of Agua Mágica is one of preserving and honoring local artistry. The brand not only pleases the senses but also champions local entrepreneurship. Each bottle sold contributes 1 USD or 5% of annual profits towards the mezcal certification and business consulting of local mezcaleros.  

Sip to Savor, Sip to Support

Agua Mágica advocates for enjoying mezcal in sips rather than shots, encouraging drinkers to appreciate its intricate flavors. This approach directly correlates with better wages, improved working conditions, and sustainable agricultural practices within the Oaxacan community. Savoring this mezcal neat honors its mystical spirit and the artisanal traditions of the Oaxacan people.

An Invitation to Tradition

Let each sip of Agua Mágica serve as a passport to Oaxaca's vibrant culture and landscape, offering a celebration of the remarkable craftsmanship that fills each bottle and directly benefits local communities.

What is the difference between Tequila & Mezcal?

Tequila is a type of mezcal, much like how scotch and bourbon are types of whiskey.

Tequila and mezcal are both types of agave-based spirits that are popular in Mexico, but there are some key differences between the two. Tequila is made exclusively from the blue agave plant, which is primarily grown in the area surrounding the city of Tequila, about 40 miles northwest of Guadalajara. Mezcal, on the other hand, can be made from any type of agave plant, and is often made using traditional, labor-intensive methods.

One of the most noticeable differences between tequila and mezcal is their flavor. Tequila is typically smooth and subtle, with hints of fruit and spices, while mezcal has a more complex, smoky flavor that comes from the roasting of the agave hearts before they are fermented and distilled.

Another difference between the two spirits is their production process. Tequila is typically made using modern industrial methods, while mezcal is often produced using traditional techniques that have been passed down for generations. This can give mezcal a more authentic, artisanal character.

In general, tequila is considered to be a more refined and sophisticated spirit, while mezcal is often viewed as a more rustic and traditional drink. Both are popular in Mexico and are enjoyed around the world, so the best way to decide which one you like is to try them both and see which one suits your tastes.
