About this destilado de agave

Campanilla Ensamble was produced by Maestra M. Maria de la Luz in Palmar Segundo, San Luis Potosi, using Agave salmiana crassispina (Maguey Chino & Cuerno). This is a very small batch production of 100 liters made using stone pool fermentation and double distillation in Campanilla claypot stills.

You can learn more about this Campanilla style distillation on the Agavera website.

Campanilla

Campanilla is a rare mezcal from San Luis Potosí. The production of this mezcal includes a unique way of traditional cooking, milling, and distilling that have been largely abandoned. Production yields are very low, making these very limited batches.

Batch ENDEU, bottle 34/38.
Vivacious and bodacious, this one is not to be missed. A waft of green pepper and perhaps an additional hint of fermentation (could not put my finger on it) make for an exquisite smell, but the taste is where this truly shines. Orange rind (blame it on the Cuerno – had a bottle of that one and the orange rind went through the roof), cucumber, green pepper, cheese, jamon, mango, and a slight bitterness in the end. Sometimes it seems more than slight, but I am glad to note that it never gets overwhelming and you can chew on every single sip for a long time. Got so hooked on this Ensamble that I had to secure several bottles of the stuff, and if there are any left anywhere, my claw will find its way to them. Seems that the very particular production process and the addition of pulque work wonders.

This the most fabulous salmiana I have ever had. Someone said, very enthusiastically, that it was like eating a burger with jalapeño and cheese, and there is some truth to that in my mind.
There is a vegetal quality over the aromas, a bit vague first, but you slowly get the notion of green bell peppers on a hot barbecue. On the palate, there is first jalapeño and vague lactic notes reminiscent of cheddar, but then suddenly there is an explosion of flavours coming on – cookie dough, cinnamon, guava, pear, dates, belota ham, green poblano chili, honey and a light touch of barbecue smoke. Great mouthfeel, minerality and viscosity. The very best from Campanilla, but alas a pretty rare batch. Hopefully, this family is in it for the long run. Lot ENDEU, bottle 21/38.
