Derrumbes Michoacan is made with wild maguey Cupreata, which brings mature fruit aromas, and wild maguey Alto, which brings more herbal notes.
'Lot 1. Bottle 294/1440. Very leathery on the nose with a rush of pepper on the first taste. The pepper doesn’t overpower the mezcal and it fades into a buttery vegetal sweetness that stays long in the mouth. This is a very unique mezcal, even for those that come from Michoacan. I highly recommend giving this a try.'
Aroma: floral, ripe fruit, banana, lime, dry
Palate: floral, lavender, liquorice, tropical fruit, buttery, complex, balanced
Maestro Mezcalero: Guadalupe Perez
Interesting fact: inaequidens means “uneven teeth,” which is applicable to this agave as the teeth of the pencas are uneven and jagged
Maguey (Agave): papalote / alto (a. cupreata / a. inaequidens)
Region: Tzitzio, Michoacan
Oven type: underground stone pit, using black oak
Extraction method: shredder
Fermentation: in underground tanks lined with pine, adding herbal character
Still type: Phillipino method, which predates copper-pot distillation. This technique requires the body of the still to be made from wood, with the alcohol vapours condensed by a copper pot full of water that sits at the top of the trunk. This process adds to the unique character of Derrumbes Michoacan
Ageing: matured in glass

A crunchy, spicy, smoky seasoning salt with roasted ground agave worms and smoked chillies from Oaxaca, traditionally sprinkled on orange slices which are sucked in-between sips of mezcal.The agave worm lives on the agave plant and is a pest, what better way to seek revenge than to eat it before it does damage to these amazing plants that provide us with juice which is fermented and distilled into mezcal.Not suitable for vegetarians!Packed in a little screw top jar.
