Description: Del Maguey makes Mezcal in the lush, remote mountains plains and valleys of Oaxaca, Mexico. Vida is a hand-crafted Mezcal using 400 year old organic Agave Espadin made in the old-world traditional way. Unaged mezcal that is referred to as joven, or young. Produced without chemicals,coloring, or additives in any Del Maguey single-vineyard Mezcal.
MEZCAL DEFINITION: A distilate made from the charred hearts of the Agave desert plant. (The big difference in flavor profile between Tequila and Mezcal—beyond factors like aging, yeast, and the agave varietal(s) used—is that in mezcal, agave hearts are charred, deeply roasted in pits called “palenques,” which impart a smokiness to the flavor spectrum. Tequila is, by law, the product of just the Blue Weber varietal, while Mezcal can be made from upwards of 30 kinds of Agave—though the majority is made with the Espadin varietal)
