Rey Campero 'Jabali' Mezcal

Avg. Rating: 
(0)

Produced and bottled by one of the few palenques in Oaxaca that produce estate grown mezcal, this variety of agave (Agave Convallis) is among the rarest you’ll see distilled into Mexico’s native spirit. While the plant grows abundantly, it is difficult to get a proper distillate from, so when it happens, the mezcaleros are jumping for joy! Slight citrus notes with a soft, herbaceous quality, this is among the smoothest mezcal we’ve presented to you, and we fell in love with it immediately. We took as much of it as we could get, but this bottling is extremely rare, and we urge you to act quickly. One bottle limit per customer. 97 proof

Rey Campero means "king of the countryside", and is a reference to the landscape, - which is comprised of steep slopes and canyons that make harvesting agave quite treacherous - its terroir, the hard work that is required, and resulting superior quality of the mezcals produced by this family. Led by Maestro Mezcalero Romulo Sanchez Parada, they distill mostly wild agave from the hillsides of Candelaria Yegole, which is around a two-hour drive traversing dusty roads southwest of Oaxaca City. As with many smaller Palenques in Oaxaca, the work is done collectively, from planting, to harvest, roasting and distillation. These businesses are often the heart of a community, and it's important for them to give back in many ways, be it through education, mentorship, and other forms of assistance. This is the soul of an industry.
