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.

Wine EnthusiastIf "sipping mezcal" doesn't exist, the category may have to be created for this limited-edition mezcal (only 14 three-bottle sets were produced). This "single village" mezcal is aged for 14 years in glass bottles and then is finished in a Stags Leap Cabernet barrel for 43 days. The result is a light nut-brown color and offers beautiful aromas of raisin, vanilla and dark chocolate, with a mellow pepper note in the background. Sweet agave nectar and honey flavors finish with a muted peppery sting.
