Del Maguey (pronounced ma–gay), Single Village Mezcal was founded in 1995 by internationally renowned artist and mezcal visionary, Ron Cooper. Ron introduced the world to previously unavailable 100% certified organic, artisanal mezcal through his deep cultural relationships with Zapotec Mexican Indian producers in the remote villages of Oaxaca, Mexico. This allows Del Maguey to harness ancient, original organic products. Combining these methods with varying micro-climates and terroir gives each creation its own unique, rich, sweet and smoky character.
Launched in 2010, Vida is an artisanal yet affordable mezcal intended for mixing. It is twice distilled, very slowly, in small wood-fired, riverside copper stills to flavor specifications that underscore its versatility in cocktails. Another masterpiece out of San Luis del Rio, it has a nose of fruit aromatics, a hint of honey, vanilla and roast agave; the palate offers ginger, cinnamon, burnt sandalwood, banana and tangerine, with a long, soft finish.
