Del Maguey Vida Mezcal
Tequila and mezcal are produced in different states of Mexico (though there is overlap). Tequila can only be made, by law, with one variety of agave: the Blue Agave. Mezcal can be made with upwards of 30 varieties of agave, though most are made with the Agave Espadin.
Del Maguey Vida is an artisanal, organic Mezcal. It launched in 2010, is highly mixable, and has gained much industry acceptance and high bartender demand. Hand-crafted, it is twice distilled, very slowly in small wood-fired, riverside copper stills to flavor specifications that underscore its versatility in cocktails.
