Derrumbes mezcal is a collection of geographically diverse mezcals that have been hand selected by the brand owners. Stretching from Oaxaca to Michoacan and beyond, each bottle of mezcal is made using different agaves and production methods. We are truely lucky to have access to some of these very small batch producers.
Derrumbes Durango is produced from agave Cenizo (Durangesis) in the remote village of Nombre de Dios. This small village is starting to make a big name for itself in the world of Mezcal. The maestro mezcalero Urial Simental has struck a beautiful balance between sweet dark fruit flavours and minerality.
TASTE: Turns to sweet and fruity, with mango, strawberry, wildflower honey, and a bit of minerality tying things together. Medium bodied.
Finish: Surge of cooked agave, with clay, beeswax, asparagus, white grapefruit, and a hint of ash. Medium length.
ENJOY: Sipped slowly. Take your time and “kiss” this mezcal. Look past the alcohol and unlock a hidden world of agave goodness
