Paquera Barril

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 agave 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.

Paquera Mezcal

Paquera Mezcal gets it's name from a story about it's founder. He was dating a Brazilian girl and anytime he was out with her, she would say his name with Paquera at the end. In Portuguese, this word directly translates to a flirt or flirting, but in this case it was being used to describe that grey area of Friends with Benefits. This term is on every bottle and it's spirit is reflected in the logo and bottle design.

A low-priced agave Barril mezcal adjusted to 45% ABV; it is less than $70/bottle. I don’t get a ton of the grassy agave Karwinskii notes but I’ve also found Barril mezcals to be very different between brands. I’m not sure if I would guess this was a Karwinskii in a blind taste test. That said, it is enjoyable and has notes of apple peel, lemon zest, and vanilla bean. Lot PAQBJ450118
