Derrumbes Michoacan is made with agave Cupreata, which brings mature fruit aromas, and agave Alto (a sub-species of agave Inaequidens) which brings more herbal notes. It is cooked in an underground stone pit using black oak, and fermented in underground tanks lined with pine wood which adds to the herbal character. True to the tradition of mezcal production in this area, Derrumbes Michoacan is distilled using the Phillipino method, which predates copper-pot distillation. This technique requires the body of the still to be made from wood, with the alcohol vapors condensed by a copper pot full of water that sits at the top of the trunk. This process adds to the unique character of Derrumbes Michoacan, which after distillation is around 45% ABV. It is rested in large glass bottles before the final bottling.

This ensamble is made of equal parts Chino (agave Cupreata) and Alto (agave Inaequidens) which are iconic to mezcals made in Michoacan. Small amounts of Chino are found in Oaxaca where it is known as Papalome. Alto is found in the south of Michoacan. The stills are made of wood pots with copper condensers. Made by the renowned Maestro, Guadalupe Perez, in the village of Tzitzio.
