Mezcal Del Maguey Chichicapa Mezcal 48% - 70cl

The Chichicapa Mezcal is at least as unique as the village in which it is produced!
Chichicapa is located two hours south of Oaxaca, and a large mountain range separates the small village from the city. Located 2100 meters above sea level, the village boasts a very dry climate that doesn't in any way harm banana, mango and guava tree growth. Faustino Garcia Vasquez is a very modest mezcal producer, regardless of his immense talent for it, who maintains a deep respect for the traditional methods and follows them precisely.

Del Maguey, Single Village Mezcal, was founded by Ron Cooper in 1995. This world-renowned artist provided the world with an opportunity to enjoy a 100% biological, artisan mezcal produced exclusively according to traditional practices. The products from Del Maguey respect traditions that extend 400 years into the past. The combination of traditional methods with the various micro-climates of the villages were Del Maguey is produced allow each mezcal product to have its own irreplaceable and unforgettable flavor. Each product from this collection is produced by a palenqueros family in a traditional mezcal-producing village. Each mezcal in the Del Maguey line is named after the village in which it is produced. Del Maguey is in fact the first mezcal brand that has served to unite traditional Mexican mezcal from various locations.
The distillation process takes place in the various palenques (locations of production) in the Oaxaca province, where local cultures and biological practicalities are valued and small producers collaborate on a fair trade basis with local farmers.
The palenqueros use exclusively natural ingredients and engage with traditional procedures that are over 400 years old. Only two ingredients are used: the heart of the agave plant and a maximum of 10% water, added during the fermentation process.
Del Maguey Single Village Mezcal is recognized by the OCIA, the Organic Group Improvement Association, and the USDA, the United States Department of Agriculture. This line of mezcals is the first to receive a certification for 100% organic products.
