Del Maguey Vida 750ML
Del Maguey Vida Mezcal 750 is a premium mezcal handcrafted in San Luis Del Rio, a village in the southern Mexican state of Oaxaca. The mezcal is made using 100% Espadín agave, cooked in an in-ground pit, crushed, and then naturally fermented in wooden vats. The fermented juice is then double distilled in wood-fired copper stills, resulting in a smooth and complex spirit with a unique flavor profile.
- On the nose, Del Maguey Vida Mezcal 750 has aromas of smoke and leather, balanced by notes of charred pineapple and flamed sage.
- The mezcal is both light and strong on the palate, with a slightly lighter body due to its low alcohol content.
- Earthy notes of green pineapple fronds complement the bold flavors of charred orange, herbs, and gasoline.
This mezcal was created for mixing into drinks, making it a popular choice for bartenders looking to introduce customers to the mezcal world. The brand's maestros, Marcos Cruz Mendes and Paciano Cruz Nolasco have crafted a unique and high-quality spirit that showcases the classic mezcal flavors while being versatile enough for cocktails.
Del Maguey Vida Mezcal is an excellent choice for mezcal enthusiasts and cocktail lovers, offering a smooth and complex flavor profile with smoke, leather, and spice notes.

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.
