About this mezcal
The Rey Campero Cuishe mezcalero, Romulo Sanchez Parada, learned how to make mezcal from his dad and worked in the palenque until he was 20. When the economy went bad and Mezcal was no longer a viable enterprise he emigrated north and worked in North Carolina. He returned to Mexico in 2003, gathered his family, and began making Mezcal again. Rey Campero Cuishe has a very clean, crisp nose with a nice fruit and mineral mixing with some heat on the finish.
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.
