The San Luis del Rio uses the same base material as the Vida bottling, only with a higher proof, at 94 degrees. Del Maguey describes the village's locale:
Two hours south of Oaxaca on a two-lane, pot holed highway on route to the Gulf of Tehuantepec is the turnoff to San Luis Del Rio. One takes another 2 hours on a winding, rocky, dirt road. The pueblo is located in a narrow, hot valley, with steep slopes full of Maguey Espadin. The Rio Hormiga Colorada (Red Ant River) flows through it. You may see Paciano Cruz Nolasco, tending his fields. Above the large fields of Maguey, the tops of the mountains are scattered with cornfields, Iguanas crawling across the road, the trees and cactus with Bromeliads growing on them.
It has a more subtle character, lightly smoked, and a faint floral perfume, and a bit more focused in flavor and texture.
