MOUTH SAYS...

Rey Campero means “King of the Countryside” in Spanish. And what makes this mezcal such a royal offering is the distillery’s commitment to terroir by producing mezcal sourced from a wild species of agave that grows around the southern highlands of Oaxaca. Each of their bottles hail from a single species, several of which take 15 to 18 years to mature. Think of it as the 15-year-old single malt Scotch…of Mexico. 

Pit roasted and open-fermented with naturally occurring yeasts, The Mexicano varietal yields a complex bouquet of vanilla bean, citrus, pine nuts, smoked cedar and espresso.

Sip this one neat and don’t skip the traditional orange slices and sal de gusano. Literally, “worm salt.” 

TIP OF THE TONGUE

Did you know that due to overwhelming global demand, many wild agave species are now threatened? Lucky for us, Rey Campero is committed to sustainability and replants much of what they harvest. Love that.

 

48% alcohol by volume. Comes in a 750ml bottle.
