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 Oaxaca naturally represents the rich character of the Central Valleys of Oaxaca, epicenter of agave biodiversity. An ensemble of two of its most representative species - Espadín and Tobalá - it is produced by the skilful hand of third generation agave farmer and Maestro Javier Mateo and his family in the town of Santiago Matatlán. Pit roasted with black oak and tahona ground, it goes thru a wild fermentation using pulque as aid and water from the ancestral Zapotec town of Mitla. The result is a round, full body mezcal with a light smokiness that gives way to its minerality and delicate fruitiness.
