About this mezcal
Rey Campero Mezcla Salvaje is an ensamble of wild maguey Jabali, Tepextate, and Sierra Negra. These three agave are rare and they are almost never seen together as an ensamble. These three agave are most commonly seen as single-varietal expressions. Previous batches of this mezcal were released under the “Herencia de Sánchez” label that is available in Mexico, and like Rey Campero, is owned and operated by maestro mezcalero Romulo Sanchez Parada. The first Rey Campero release of this mezcal was made in August 2015 and contained just 138 bottles.
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.
