Vida de Muertos

Inspired by the annual batches of Mezcal distilled in the village of San Luis del Rio for their celebration of Día De Los Muertos, “Day of the Dead,” Del Maguey Single Village® Mezcal presents Vida de Muertos, a special 45 ABV edition of Vida Clásico.

One of the most culturally significant holidays in Mexico, Día De Los Muertos is an emotional celebration in which the living honor the memory of those who have come before them.
