About this mezcal
Mezcal Papá Rey is made by 4th generation mezcalero Don Aquileo Lorenzo in Santiago Matatlan, Oaxaca. This joven mezcal is produced using hand-selected mature 8-12 year old agave Espadin. The agaves are cooked in an underground oven for 5 days and then crushed using a tahona pulled by the family horse. Next, the mash is fermented with water in wooden vats for 7-9 days depending on the climate. Finally, it is double-distilled in small copper pots. This mezcal is clean and citrus forward on the nose. On the palate it is grassy with notes of bell pepper and minerality.
