Paquera Barril is a bit smokier than their other releases, with a consistent floral undertone. The palate is buttery and full.

About this mezcal
Paquera Barril is made with maguey Barril in Ejutla, Oaxaca. The agave used in this mezcal are cooked in an underground pit oven, mashed by horse-drawn tahona, fermented in oak vats, and double distilled in a copper still. This is the Premium option of the three Paquera releases.
Another special batch of this was released in 2022. This batch was made by Luis Juárez and his family is San Agustín Amatengo. This particular batch was 1000 liters.
Paquera Mezcal is meant to be appreciated and savored. The brand recommends sipping Paquera slowly as to experience its quality. Created from a methodology perfected over generations of dedicated family artisans, their love for Mezcal has only deepened upon being exposed to its unique production process and rich culture.
Paquera’s mission and purpose is to contribute resources to the union de productores agropecuarios del distrito de Ejutla de crespo (UPADEC) which is a coalition of local palenques that work together to sustain and grow their micro-enterprises. This artisanal spirit is beloved by many and the brand is driven to honor its cultural importance in every bottle. The company strives to continue the history of appreciation and respect for the most precious spirit of all – Mezcal.
