Maguey Melate Pichomel

Agave Spirits
Puebla, Mexico
Agave Maturity 8-12 YEARS WILD | TIME IN EARTH OVEN 3-5 DAYS

Maguey Melate Pechuga from Rodrigo Martinez Mendez was originally released as the November 2020 Mezcalero of the Month Club agave spirit. Rodrigo is a 2nd generation maestro mezcalero, and he is the son of famed maestro mezcalero Gregorio “Don Goyo” Martinez Garcia. He’s been producing since 2013 at their palenque in San Baltazar Guelavila, Oaxaca.

The Producer

Celebrating craftsmanship, tradition, and sustainability. Maguey me late (muh-gay may lah-tay) literally translates to “agave makes my heart beat” –  it represents our love for this spirit, tradition, and region.

Our mission is to preserve and promote traditional agave spirit production methods, culture, and family owned palenques in a value-packed way that serves as an opposing force to the faster-cheaper economy.

As mezcal is rapidly discovered around the world, it’s very challenging for consumers to fully grasp exactly what it is, where it comes from, and how to fully enjoy its many nuances that make it so unique and exciting. This ultimately makes it harder to fully appreciate artisanal mezcal and easier for big business to exploit the opportunities offered by mass-produced industrial mezcal.
