Del Maguey Mezcal is a brand founded by artist and mezcal expert Ron Cooper in 1995. Del Maguey offers unique, certified organic, artisanal mezcal made using traditional, organic processes in Oaxaca, Mexico. Del Maguey works closely with Zapotec Mexican producers from remote villages to create mezcal from distinct micro-climates and terroir. Each creation has its own character, and is made by individual family producers in their villages. Del Maguey is the first brand to credit each product after the village where it's made, and their green bottles became an iconic design. Del Maguey is committed to fair trade and sustainable practices, ensuring that local producers are compensated fairly and that agave cultivation remains sustainable for future generations. The brand was recently purchased by Pernod Ricard, joining their portfolio of international spirits.
