Del Maguey del Maguey Mezcal Minero Santa Catarina Minas Single Village 750ml


SKU 20575



Our Minero from Santa Catarina Minas has a nose full of flower essence, vanilla and figs with a burnt honey flavor and a bit of lemon. Minero is deep and warm, sweet all the way to the finish. One hour beyond the
village of Chichicapa and through a mountain pass, one arrives at Santa Catarina Minas. This pueblo has an arid semi-tropical microclimate and great water! Our palenqueros, Florencio Carlos Sarmiento and his sons Florencio Carlos Vasquez and Luis Carlos Vasquez, are true craftsmen. Their “palenque” site of production) is the most well organized we have seen, including a cistern to cool and recycle the water used in the condensation process. The still is made of clay with bamboo tubing, giving Minero its unique fruity character.

Ultimate Spirits Challenge 95 points - Opening with an floral array of honeysuckle, apple blossom, vanilla and ripe pear, it carries a delectable undertone of smoked white peppercorn. Once in the mouth it is incredibly smooth and delightfully sweet with reoccurring vanilla notes and a very subtle touch of honey. All of this wraps up into an impeccable, fruity finish.
