Del Maguey Single Village Mezcal Las Milpas

Part of Del Maguey mezcal’s core village series, Las Milpas (46% ABV) is crafted by roasting ripe agave espadin in a clay oven. The roasted agave is milled using a horse-drawn windmill and fermented using only ambient microbes and yeasts in open-air wooden fermentation tanks and double distilled in small copper stills.

Las Milpas is said to offer a nose of “slate and minerals, balanced by tropical fruit and citrus notes, with rose petal florals, lavender, tarragon, and pea shoots, that evolves into a long and pleasantly dry finish”.

In August 2017, French firm Pernod Ricard completed its acquisition of a majority stake in Del Maguey Single Village Mezcal for an undisclosed sum.
