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.
AROMA: Amazingly fruity, it’s like a smoked cantaloupe, lime juice, cooked apple, pineapple, pears, wood smoke, pine needles, rock salt, marzipan, with water, Tarte tatin, salted pastry, mashed apricot
TASTE: Initially dry and vegital then gets a little sweeter, Smoke, roast agave, BBQ asparagus, garden peas, candied lemon and lime peel, Yuzu, salted caramel.
ENJOY: Sipped slowly. Take your time and “kiss” this mezcal. Look past the alcohol and unlock a hidden world of agave goodness.
