Del Maguey, Single Village Mezcal was founded in 1995 by Ron Cooper, who wanted to introduce the world to previously unavailable artisanal mezcal produced the original handcrafted way. Through deep relationships with indigenous producers in Oaxaca and Puebla, Mexico, Del Maguey protects and preserves the ancient production processes that have been passed down for generations. These traditional methods, combined with the diverse micro-climates and terroir of Mexico, give each creation its own unique, rich, sweet and smoky character that celebrates the art of each family producer. Every product in the brand’s range is made by individual family palenques. The brand has been part of the portfolio of the international spirits company Pernod Ricard since 2017.

Expressions in the Del Maguey, Vino de Mezcal Series are hand selected by the founder, Ron Cooper. They are produced in very limited quantities from select wild and cultivated varietals. Before the notion of mezcal or tequila as spirits categories, agave based spirits from anywhere in Mexico were traditionally referred to as vino de mezcal. The first mention of tequila as a beverage is in the town of Tequila’s tax record of 1873, which contains an entry showing that three barrels of mezcal wine from the region of Tequila were sent to Santa Fe, New Mexico.

Barril is a special edition mezcal from Del Maguey’s Vino De Mezcal series, produced by the talented eighty-year old master palenquero Florencio, “Don Lencho” Laureano Carlos Sarmiento. It is made from semi-wild maguey Barril, which is the biggest, fattest maguey of the Tobasiche, Madrecuishe, Cirial, Larga family. The magueys are roasted in a conical pit over hot rocks, covered with earth for three days, fermented with nothing but airborne microbes for thirty days, and then twice distilled very slowly in a traditional clay still with bamboo tubing.

The nose is spicy and floral, with carnation, tropical aromatics of gardenia and jasmine, ripe pear, dark fig, and notes of wet green hay and forest floor. It is round, soft and gentle on the palate, like a caramel, and full-bodied, with a big middle palate. The long finish has notes of roasted root vegetables and umami, leaving the mouth with terracotta, a slate-like minerality and a touch of salinity.
