About this mezcal

Rey Campero Castilla is made with agave Castilla (Angustfolia), which is related to agave Espadin. Romulo Sanchez Parada makes this mezcal at his palenque in Candeleria Yegole, Oaxaca, which is a remote and isolated town of only a couple hundred people.

Rey Campero Mezcal

Rey Campero represents the culture, tradition and art of Candelaria Yegolé, a small town in the Southern Highlands of Oaxaca, with a fertile ground on its slopes and canyons. It represents a people dedicated to the production of artisanal Mezcal, so one of its principles is to help producers of maguey, by creating job opportunities, but especially in finding markets for the best Mezcal. Rey Campero, means "King of the Countryside" and it was founded by the maestro mezcalero Romulo Sanchez Parada. Romulo learned how to make mezcal from his father, and he worked in the palenque until age 20. He lived and worked for several years in North Carolina while in his 20s before returning to Oaxaca in 2003. Each lot may vary slightly, so check your bottle for specific details about ABV.

Batch DS001-CLL. From Nov 2015. Bottle 108/310. Very tasty! Slightly sour aromas of wild apples. Tastes of slightly overripe mango and papaya. This is dope! Very interested in tasting more of this.

  • Overall:

Full and rich upfront with a dry sweet nose. Lots of minerals on the palate , slate and somewhat citrus on the finish. Nice wild agave flavors for this mezcal produced in Nov 2015 and likely rested in glass until it’s current release. Bottle 6/310.
