Del Maguey Special Offer
Anyone who's tried knows that proper Mezcal is hard to find. If not for Del Maguey's super-rare (and correspondingly expensive) single village Mezcals, most Australians would have given up the search. They have stimulated the re-emergence of an entire category, both in Australia, though more so the States where they were recently inducted into F. Paul Pacult's Spirit Journal Hall of Fame. Only 16 other producers have been included to date. Such is the quality on offer here.
These heirloom spirits of the Zapotecs vary in taste as much as wines, and flavour wise, there's virtually nothing like them in the world. Their only natural counterpart is smoky Islay whisky (not surpisingly, Japan is one of mezcal's biggest export markets). Indeed, the relationship between mezcal and tequila has been equated to that of Islay malts vs the rest of the whisky world - exotic, assertive, smoky, briny even 'industrial' at times - that's real mezcal. If you're feeling adventurous, this is a terrific opportunity to get your hands on two of Del Maguey's most authentic, super premium offerings at dramatically reduced prices - the Tobala and Pechuga.
