Maguey Melate Inaequidens – Miguel Ortiz Villagomez 375ml 

Maguey Melate Inaequidens from Miguel Ortiz Villagomez was originally released as the February 2021 Mezcalero of the Month Club agave spirit. This mezcal was made with Agave inaequidens, which is known locally as Alto because it prefers to grow at very high altitudes. This region of Michoacan can get relatively cold, which slows fermentation. Miguel adds about 5 liters of pulque to his fermenting agave to help jumpstart the yeasts.

Maguey Melate was founded on two ideas: 1) Artisanal agave spirits are amazing and should be shared with the world, and 2) The faster-cheaper economy is a harmful force for people, the environment, and now agave spirits.

They believe if mezcal (and agave spirits) can be understood and appreciated at its full potential, people will show their preference for quality artisanal mezcal that is sustainably and fairly sourced. By raising consumer consciousness on the origins of mezcal and educating enthusiasts on matters of quality and character, informed people will be empowered to ensure the future of mezcal. To do this, they’re reaching a large audience with an impactful message: KEEP MEZCAL ARTISANAL!
