Ron Cooper, an American artist, founded the Del Maguey Single Village distillery in 1955 with the aim of making the mezcal authentic and artisan known to the world.
Thanks to the strong relationship established with Mexican indigenous communities of the Oaxaca and Puebla region, Del Maguey protects and preserves the ancient production processes handed down from generation to generation for hundreds of years. These traditional methods, combined with the different microclimates and terroirs of Mexico, give each product a unique and complex character that celebrates the art of the family producer.
VIDA de San Luis Del Rio is an artisan organic Mezcal from Del Maguey, at an entry-level price and wider availability. Launched in 2010, it is easily mixable and has anticipated a very popular and highly recognized category in the world of bartrenders.
