About The Mezcal

There are many that believe that Mezcal is one of the few spirits in the world that can convey a sense of place.

The agave plant shows unique characteristics depending on where it's grown. And on top of that, there is a varietal selection of agave which adds another layer of detail and complexity to the picture.

This is a single varietal bottling of agave from one of the spearhead producers of Mezcal's rise in popularity over the last few years.

It's richly flavoured, smokey and lightly honeyed. A wicked introduction to the serious side of this fascinating spirit.

Additional Info

From The Importer

In some regions Agave Mexicano is also known as Dobadaan (its local name in Zapotec). Mexicano grows from Sonura south to Oaxaca, mostly in the foothills. Drinking mezcal made with Mexicano is a unique experience. Though exact numbers are unknown, some speculate that there are seven or more sub-varieties of Mexicano--inc. Mexicano Penca Larga, Mexicano Penca Corta, Mexicano Liso, Chontal and Amarillo Grande--with each yielding different characteristics in its mezcal.

Using ten-year-old wild and semi-wild agave grown within an hour's drive of the palenque, QQRQ's Mexicano is crafted in Santiago Matatlán by Carlos Méndez, the sixth-generation Mezcalero behind QQRQ's house mezcal. A passionate advocate of sustainability, Méndez collects wild seeds from the hills, cultivating and nurturing them in safe conditions before reintroducing these plants to the wild.

Do I have to order in dozens? No, please mix it up! You can order wines in any quantity and variation you like. You can order 1 bottle or 50. We challenge you to make the ultimate mixed pack of wine!

Are there volume discounts? No, our pricing is designed to be the best in market already - no marking up and then discounting down! For very large orders (weddings, etc) we are open to negotiating though. Just give us a call.

Do we price match? Yes, within reason. Everyday low & consistent pricing is something we strongly believe in. We want our customers to feel confident they are always getting the best price. If you see a price lower somewhere else let us know and we'll consider matching it. We'll even retrospectively issue you store credit if you have already purchased from us but you see a lower price somewhere later on. Our price match policy can be seen here.

Can coupons and discounts be stacked? No, only one discount or coupon can be applied to an order at once.

I am trying to add more of a wine to my cart but it won’t let me? This means we are running low on stock of that wine. So for example, if the website will only allow you to add 3 bottles and no more, then that is all we have of that particular wine. The good news is we may be able to order more for you. Just contact us on 02 8376 8775 or and we'll organise the additional quantity for you.

Does Different Drop have a physical store? No. Just an a warehouse/office. We occasionally do events however, so sign up to our newsletter or follow us on instagram to stay in the loop.

Can I special order a wine you do not sell? If it’s doable, then we’ll make it happen. Just contact us directly via phone, chat or email and we’ll find out for you right away. Please note that in most cases special orders such as these will need to be in full case lots (6 or 12 bottles).
