About this mezcal
Real Minero Largo, Tobala is made with 57% Maguey Largo (agave Karwinskii) and 43% Maguey Tobala (agave Potatorum). 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 April/May of 2019 produced just 212 liters.
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, 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 and using the term "traditional" to replace the CRM "ancestral" designation.
