Del Maguey brings you a collection of Single Village® Mezcal made in the lush, remote mountains, plains and valleys of Oaxaca (wa-haka), Mexico. Each mezcal is named for the village where it is made.
Chichicapa has a medium nose and a complex taste with lots of citrus and a long, smooth finish with overtones of mint. The pueblo elevation is 5052 ft. (1540 meters) in a broad valley with a desert and tropical micro-climate.
Del Maguey mezcals are twice distilled and unblended from 100% mature agave Espadin and are produced the original, 400-year-old hand-crafted way. Production is limited to exclusive quantities per year to preserve quality. There are no chemicals, colorings or additives ever used in any Del Maguey, Single Village® Mezcal.
