About this mezcal
Rey Campero Jabali (Clay Pot) is a special release commemorating the 5th anniversary of the partnership between Rey Campero and Heavy Metl Imports, who are responsible for all US Rey Campero imports. This one-off batch was produced by Maestro Mezcalero Romulo Sanchez Parada in October 2016 using the clay pot still that he had temporarily constructed for a few experimental batches at his palenque. The batch was aged in glass for 4 years before being released.
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.
