Mezcal Del Maguey Iberico - 750ml

Mezcal Del Maguey Iberico - 750ml


Ron Cooper, Del Maguey Single Village® Mezcal’s founder, and Chef José Andrés, and his team at ThinkFoodGroup worked collaboratively to create Del Maguey Ibérico, a unique mezcal made with Ibérico de Bellota ham, the legendary ham made of free-range, acorn-fed, black-footed Ibérico pigs from Spain.


This expression of Del Maguey has a spicy floral nose of carnation, tropical aromatics of gardenia and jasmine, ripe pear, dark fig, notes of wet green hay and forest floor. It enters the mouth like a caramel, and is round, soft and gentle, full-bodied, with a big middle palate. The long finish tastes of roasted root vegetables and umami, leaving the mouth with terracotta, a slate-like minerality and a touch of salinity.
