About this mezcal
Rey Campero Tepextate + Cuishe + Espadin is the first of what will likely be a series of several “field blends” from maestro mezcalero Romulo Sanchez Parada. The concept of the field blend is that the mezcalero uses whatever agave is ready, rather than waiting for a large amount of a single varietal to make a batch of mezcal. This practice is more in line with how mezcal has historically been produced in many regions, and it allows the mezcaleros, like Romulo, to create some very interesting Ensambles.
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.
