Espadín, Rey Campero
  • Produced by Maestro Mezcalero, Romulo Sanchez Parada, in Candelaria Yegolé, Zoquitlán, Oaxaca
  • Distilled from 100% Espadín (Agave angustifolia)
  • Agave cooked in a conical earthen pit, milled using a traditional stone tahona, and fermented in open-air wooden vats
  • Distilled twice using traditional wood-fired copper pot stills
  • Leads with an aroma like deep damp soil and tree bark, equal parts petrichor and forest floor, before blossoming on the palate into an earthy bouquet of green herbs, with a big grip of oregano and coriander in particular, brightened by subtle waves of citrus zest
  • 48% ABV (Alcohol may vary from batch to batch)
Representing over 96% of the agave in Oaxaca, this core variety offers a blank canvas for any Maestro Mezcalero in the state to paint upon, and Rey Campero Espadin is the perfect way to consider terroir and production methods.
