We had the rare opportunity a while back to meet Ron Cooper and taste all of the single-village mezcals he has assembled under the Del Maguey Brand. We were quite taken not only with the breadth of the line, but with the depth and complexity of each. All Del Maguey mezcal is 100 percent organic espadin agave, traditionally roasted in stone-lined pits, and twice distilled in traditional pot stills.

Square One Botanical Organic Vodka is infused with enough botanicals that it smells and tastes similar to a flowery and citrus-laden gin.

This smooth cachaça tastes of brown sugar, ripe bananas, vanilla, butter toffee, earth, cinnamon and bananas Foster. The finish embraces the palate with a wonderful balance of salt, and a light lingering honey.

The taste is full and sweet and earthy, with banana, brown sugar, a touch of roasted peppers somewhere between sweet red bells and hot paprika, and Brazil nuts.
