About this mezcal

Real Minero Largo, Becuela is made with Maguey Largo (agave Karwinskii) and Maguey Becuela (agave Marmorata). Maestro Edgar Angeles Carreno hand-mashed the agave in a stone pit, fermented them with well water, and double distilled in Filipino style clay pot stills. The batch produced in 2019 produced just 86 bottles.

Real Minero Mezcal

Real Minero is considered by many to be one of the world's finest Mezcal producers. The family has been making mezcal for several generations in Santa Catarina Minas, and they're known both in Mexico and abroad for creating some of the best bottles available. All of 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.

Bottle 13/86. Batch ARMLB-04 from 2019. 50.78% ABV. When you stop to think that only 65 liters were produced, you must remind yourself how lucky you are to experience such a truly artisanal spirit. I like this bottle very much. Not surprising, as I love Largo and have never been disappointed yet by any bottle of Real Minero.

Solid Mezcal. Earthy and robust agave. The clay distillation comes through nicely, and ends with peppery spice. Does not disappoint, which is what I’ve come to expect with Real Minero.

Another winner from Eduardo! Fresh ripe bananas on the initial nose but more earthy clay notes when I came back to it after some time in the glass. The palate has some crisp green pepper notes and a little but of heat which I imagine is from the 13% Becuela ( think Tepextate). Opens up beautifully in the copita over time. Worth searching out
