Del Maguey Crema de Mezcal

Mezcal Joven

Del Maguey Crema de Mezcal is a blend of their famed San Luis del Rio Mezcal (90%) and agave nectar (10%). It is not considered a liqueur, as it's still an 80-proof spirit, but it has a natural sweetness to it that can make it appealing for new mezcal drinkers who aren't used to its bite. We don't love the moderately sexist marketing angle ("For women only, and a few strong men"), as we've seen plenty of women drink men under the table with mezcal, but it's nonetheless a decent product for use in mezcal cocktails or introducing neophytes to the category.

In 2011, Del Maguey was named Distiller of the Year at the San Francisco World Spirits Competition.
