About this mezcal
Rey Campero Chato is made with a sub-varietal of agave Potatorum (similar to maguey Tobala), which locally goes by the name Chato. Produced in August of 2016, the entire 296 bottle batch became available exclusively at Moreno’s Liquor in Chicago, Illinois in the fall of 2018. There are no online sales, but if you find yourself in Chicago, this is definitely worth tracking down. There are notes of sweet ripe fruit followed by herbalness and finishing with a long, rich, creamy milk chocolate ending.
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.
