Real Minero

Real Minero (previously Mezcal Real Minero) is considered by many to be one of the world’s finest mezcal producers. The Angeles family has been making mezcal for several generations in Santa Catarina Minas, Oaxaca. Their mezcal is made in small clay pot stills, and almost all of it is rested in glass for several months before bottling, giving the mezcal a much softer character. Outside of creating great spirits, they also have one of the largest and most diverse sustainable agave reforestation programs. With the help of the community, they’ve been able to rescue several agave varieties that were previously thought to be extinct. The ABV of each batch may vary slightly, so check your bottle for details.

In 2020, the brand began dropping the word “mezcal” from their labels. The term “traditional” replaces the CRM “ancestral” designation. Shortly thereafter, the brand officially parted ways with the certification process; all future releases will be labeled as “agave spirits” or something similar. Despite the label changes, nothing significant about their production process has changed over years.

Cant go wrong with any of the last 4 or 5 Real Minero Ensambles

Flavors are all over the place, but really well integrated. This mezcal takes you on a tour of Oaxaca… one sip gets you farther than any website, video, or book ever could

Lote RM4N-01. Aromas of chocolate, peanuts, and wet leaves. Tastes of chocolate oranges, kale, pickled carrots, kimchi, and red pepper. Pricey but totally worth it. This is really nice.
