Del Maguey San Pablo Ameyaltepec 750ml
Introducing Del Maguey Mezcal San Pablo Ameyaltepec, a truly special and limited edition agave spirit crafted by the expert hands of Aurelio Gonzalez Tobon. This mezcal comes from the state of Puebla, which has a long-standing tradition of distilling maguey (agave) in remote villages for centuries. Recently, the state received a Denominacion de Origen, granting it the legal recognition to be called Mezcal.
The journey of this mezcal starts in the semi-tropical valley of Ameyaltepec in Puebla, where the picturesque view extends to the smoke rising from the iconic Iztaccihuatl and Popocatepetl volcanoes. The heart of the maguey, aged between twelve to eighteen years, is roasted in an earthen horno (oven) buried underground. The fermentation process takes place in the open air, utilizing ambient yeasts, and the distillation is done just once in a resaque style alembic still, passing through copper plates.
- The result is an extraordinary mezcal with a profusion of floral notes at the forefront, highlighted by spicy carnation and lilac fragrances.
- The sweetness of perfectly ripe tropical fruits adds a delightful balance to the overall flavor profile.
- While presenting crisp citrus undertones, the mezcal remains creamy, round, and velvety on the palate, reminiscent of the softness of fresh goat cheese.
- The finish is marked by a graceful finesse, displaying remarkable complexity and leaving a memorable trace of minerality.
Del Maguey Mezcal San Pablo Ameyaltepec is a true gem, carefully crafted with passion and dedication, capturing the essence of the Pueblan traditions in every sip. As a limited edition, this mezcal offers an unparalleled drinking experience, inviting connoisseurs and enthusiasts alike to savor the unique and exceptional flavors of this artisanal spirit.

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.
