About this mezcal
Reyes y Cobardes Salmiana is made with agave Salmiana in the state of San Luis Potosi. Maestro Mezcalero Don Jose Acosta learned the mezcal trade from his father. He harvests his agave from a semi-arid plateau that rests between the desert and a steep mountain ridge. This mezcal is traditionally produced in an horno of volcanic rock and it is distilled in a copper still. This mezcal has a bit of spice with a citrus aftertaste.
Reyes y Cobardes Mezcal
Reyes y Cobardes Mezcal is curated by chef Daniel Tellez Reynoso. He met mezcaleros Juan Claudio and Juan Manuel in 2014 in the region of Sola de Vega, Oaxaca. Together, they started the brand that soon spread to include other producers in different states. They have a seed bank and reforestation programs that emphasize sustainable cultivation methods. They compost spent agave pulp, and they reportedly convert unusable distillate into a fuel source to power the main facility's machinery.
