Ron Cooper, Del Maguey Single Village™ Mezcal’s founder, and Chef José Andrés, and his team at ThinkFoodGroup, are happy to announce Del Maguey Ibérico, a unique mezcal made with Ibérico de Bellota ham, the legendary ham made of free-range, acorn-fed, black-footed Ibérico pigs from southern Spain.
This expression of Del Maguey has a spicy floral nose of carnation, tropical aromatics of gardenia and jasmine, ripe pear, dark fig, notes of wet green hay and forest floor. It enters the mouth like a caramel, and is round, soft and gentle, full-bodied, with a big middle palate. The long finish tastes of roasted root vegetables and umami, leaving the mouth with terracotta, a slate-like minerality and a touch of salinity.
Beginning in May of this year, Del Maguey Ibérico will be available for purchase at top retailers in select markets and at the s.r.p. $200.00
