      Distiller Notes

      White flowers and yellow pepper lay the foundation for an expressive mid-palate of coriander and banana leaf and a textbook Tepeztate finish of Szechuan peppercorn.

      Rey Campero, Mexico
      Rey Campero  Winery Image
      With over 70 years of experience, Rey Campero represents the culture and tradition of Candelaria Yegolé, a small village in the Sierra Sur, in the municipality of Zoquitlán. The fertile soil along the Rio Quiechapa is home to more than seven species of agave that grow wild along the slopes and canyons. Helmed by Romulo Sanchez Parada, this collective of brothers, cousins, and nephews chose the name Rey Campero, meaning “King of the Countryside”, to reflect the relationship between the landscape and those who work so tirelessly to harvest the magueys from this challenging terrain. Espadín and wild agave are harvested, then cooked underground for 4–5 days before being allowed to rest for up to a week. Then, once milled by tahona, the fiber is placed in wooden vats where it open-air ferments for up to 12 days, depending on the season. Once fermented, the mash and juice from the vats are distilled in one of three small copper pot stills to produce the delicious elixir which is Mezcal Rey Campero. These distillates express an unflinching translation of the terroir and the agave that it produces.

      Mezcal Joven or “young” is bottled within two months of distillation without barrel aging and will appear clear, like a Vodka or Gin. Longer barrel aging, with the principal aim to soften and round a spirit’s flavor profile, is often most prized by connoisseurs. However, many die-hard Mezcal enthusiasts insist that oak takes away from the purity of the agave flavors—ranging from earthy and smoky to sweet and floral, often in the same Mezcal—and that Mezcal Joven is the best expression.
