Del Maguey’s latest release, Vida Puebla Mezcal, is now available at beverage alcohol retailers nationwide.
This is first expression in the brand’s portfolio produced at the new distillery at the base of the volcano Popocatépetl in Puebla.
On the nose is roasted agave with hints of citrus, white peach and candied pine, the company says. As the palenque is located in Axocopan, this mezcal has a minerality from the volcanic rock in the Puebla soil.
The suggested retail price is $37.99 per 750-ml. bottle.
Del Maguey Vida Puebla Mezcal aims to meet the growing demand in the mezcal category while creating a sustainable future for the category and the region.
“We saw the need and wanted to show it’s possible to grow in the right way: by creating a liquid that’s sustainably produced, with respect to the land, plant, and environment, honoring traditional process and culture and the people who make the Mezcal,” says Del Maguey Cofounder Steve Olson. “We felt it was our responsibility, because we opened the door to this culture by introducing the category to the world.”
Del Maguey Vida Puebla Mezcal is 40% ABV. It first rolled out to select markets in March.
