Derrumbes takes us on a journey of flavor through the heart of Mexico. Being the most biodiverse Appellation of Origin in the world, every mezcal producing region offers its unique stamp into the tapestry. We delight in offering an abundant expression of the rich soils and climates as well as the exuberant diversity of agave species and production techniques that constitute this magnificent ancestral spirit.
Each bottle of Derrumbes represents a single state and each was chosen to highlight the traditions, the Terroir and organoleptic style of the region where it was made, creating together a mind grabbing experience of variety and nuances.
Derrumbes Michoacan is an elegant combination of Michoacán’s iconic Chino and Alto agaves and its unique ancestral distillation technique. Chino (Cupreata) brings mature fruit notes while Alto (Ineaquidens) complements with a delicate herbaceous character that resembles the pine forests that surround it. It is fermented under the red clay floor of the taberna in pinewood lined pits to protect it from low temperatures to be then distilled in Michoacán’s own Philippine-style stills made of wood staves and copper over direct flame. This exquisite sensorial experience comes from renowned maestro Guadalupe Perez from the village of Tzitzio.
Oak-y smoke, roasted apricot and red pepper. A touch of savoury thyme.
