About this mezcal

El Rey Zapoteco Joven is made with agave Espadin in Santiago Matatlan, Oaxaca. The agaves are traditionally cooked in an underground oven for 4 to 7 days, milled by horse-drawn tahona, fermented in open air with natural yeasts, and double distilled in copper stills. This mezcal has a floral nose. It’s a bit peppery with some minerality and a clean finish. The ABV may vary depending on where you purchase. Check your bottle for details.

While the world around them has changed, their production techniques remain the same as they were at their founding. They sell over 10,000 bottles annually, mostly in Mexico.
