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 Zacatecas is made from 100% Tequilana Weber in the village of Huitzila, Zacatecas, right across the majestic barranca (canyon) that divides it from the valley of Tequila. Being so close, Zacatecas is mostly known for mezcal produced in the fashion of Tequila. The Bañuelos family however, are among few mezcaleros in Zacatecas that produce traditional mezcal. Pit roasted, tahona ground and spontaneously fermented, Derrumbes Zacatecas is a rare opportunity to travel back in time to experience a more ancient expression to Blue agave.
Big handfuls of black pepper with agave smoke behind it, before more sweet notes of roasted fruit, pine resin and burnt wood begin to take shape.
