DEL MAGUEY Mezcal Vida
42%, 70cl – Mezcal, Mexico / Oaxaca 

Del Maguey is a collection of fine, rare and 100% agave mezcals distilled by families in the State of Oaxaca.

Each mezcal carries the name of the village in which it is produced. The “palanquero” warms hot stones in a hole dug in the ground, then prepares the hearts of agave which are placed inside and roasted over the heat for a several days. They are then ground in a stone mill in order to collect the mash which ferments naturally. Distillation is carried out in wood-fired clay or copper stills. Del Maguey can lay claim to over 400 years of tradition. All of its products are certified “organic”.

The complexity and creamy texture of this vodka, made from their own farm-grown potatoes, creates a far more prominent character than your typical neutral grain based spirit.

Founded in 2008 by William Chase in Herefordshire, Chase Distillery has taken on the challenge to control each stage of the production, from planting and harvesting to distillation and bottling. Chase possesses an impressive 70ft Column Still and a copper pot still which allows them to produce vodkas, gins and liquueurs of superior quality.

FAIR Rum Belize
40%, 70cl – Rum, Belize

Vestal

Aside

VESTAL 2013 Pomorze
40%, 50cl – Vodka, Pologne / Mazovie

Produced artisanally, Vesta is a potato-based vodka that places the notion of terroir at the heart of the production process.

In this way the Borrell family, John and his son William, have successfully revived the traditional distillation of vodka in Poland based on a single distillation. The results are convincing, with remarkable variation from one year to the next and one terroir to another.
