Part of the brand's Vino De Mezcal series and laden with sweet fruit and florals, Del Maguey Wild Tepextate is made with the wild agave Tepextate, which offers a lighter body than many mezcals.

Tepextate has broad, twisted leaves about ten inches wide and grows at high altitude, emerging almost vertically out of rocks in the sides of mountains. After roasting for 15 days and a week long fermentation - it is distilled in copper stills.

Key Flavours

"There’s a reason for the higher price tag on this mezcal: tepeztate is a wild agave variety that can grow for up to 30+ years before it is ready to harvest. Trust me, it’ll be worth every penny."

About this product

There's a bright candied fruit nose of sweet banana. The sweetness carries into the palate with notes of passion fruit and marzipan. Del Maguey Wild Tepextate Mezcal Blanco is delicious sipped neat or in a slightly smoked and fruity Paloma.

Del Maguey was founded in 1995 by Ron Cooper. Every product in their collection is made by individual family palenqueros (producers) in old-style villages. They were one of the pioneers in crediting each product after the village where its made.

A ‘single village Mezcal,’ Del Maguey Wild Tepextate Mezcal Blanco is produced in Santa Maria Albarradas, in the Sierra Norte region of Oaxaca.
