About this mezcal
Real Minero Tripon is made with agave Tripon, which is a member of the Karwinskii family. The word Tripon is used in Spanish to describe people and things that are pot-bellied. The agave Tripon is aptly named because of it’s paunchy, pot-bellied stature. All Mezcal Real Minero is traditionally produced in Santa Catarina Minas and distilled in clay pots.
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.
