Maguey Melate

The Spirit of Agave Brought to Life

A constantly rotating selection of small batch artisanal agave spirits.

At Maguey Melate they continiously scour Mexico for the finest small batch Agave Spirits from their home base  in Oaxaca. After visiting over 200 palenques in search of the best handmade, artisanal Agave Spirits, they are debuting their fan favorites in New York.

So what are Agave Distilates? They are a subset of the agave spirits industry which are not certified as Mezcal, Raicilla, or Tequila by the regional agave spirits authority. By offering these traditional spirits as agave distillates, we support the smallest independent producers who do not have the means or will for certification.

Their focus is to introduce the world to these mezcaleros through their  virtual experience that comes with each bottle. We let the mezcaleros tell their own story to give you all the information needed in order to truly appreciate what’s inside the bottle. 

When we first met Dalton Kreiss and Dave Lather we knew Melate was an exceptional fit for Bowler Spirits.  Education , sustainability and the nurturing of some of best mezcaleros from remote regions of Mexico.
