Derrumbes Zacatecas Mezcal 750ML - made from 100% Tequilana Weber in the village of Huitzila, Zacatecas, right across the majestic barranca (canyon) that divides it from the valley of Tequila. Being so close, Zacatecas is mostly known for mezcal produced in the fashion of Tequila.

The Bañuelos family, however, are among the few mezcaleros in Zacatecas that produce traditional mezcal. Pit roasted, tahona ground, and spontaneously fermented, Derrumbes Zacatecas is a rare opportunity to return to experience a more ancient expression of Blue agave.

Tasting Notes

  • This mezcal has a unique and potentially polarizing flavor profile. On the nose, the mezcal has aromas of pink grapefruit with sugar, a wet salamander, and a roast on the tequila agave with a slight funk.
  • The thin mouthfeel on the palate might suggest a lighter-bodied mezcal. The taste is described as having notes of magic marker and being well salted, which could create a savory and slightly chemical flavor profile.
  • The hickory smoke in the finish adds some complexity and depth, but the finish is somewhat rough with burnt and tinny notes. The ethanol burn at certain points could indicate a higher alcohol content or a lack of smoothness.

Derrumbes Zacatecas is a mezcal that appeals to those who enjoy smoky and savory flavors, but the rough finish and chemical notes might be less desirable for some.

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.
