About this destilado de agave

This Rezpiral Lumbre is made by maestro mezcalero Leonardo Hernandez in the community of San Baltazar Guélavila, Oaxaca. The ABV will vary by batch. Check your bottle for details.

2018, series #2: Seventeen different master-crafted spirits by five independent artisan producers from four pueblos San Agustin Amatengo, San Baltazar Guelevila, Chichicapam and San Luis Amatlan; spirits from eleven wild and cultivated varietals, and three specialty batches (pechuga de conejo, espadin capon, espadin con frutas).

Rezpiral

Rezpiral brings selections of high-quality traditional small-batch (non-certified) Mezcals into a handful of places in the USA. At the core of the project is the embrace of an ethos that aims to respect and support the multi-generational knowledge, independence, flavors, lands, and ways of each mezcalero family.

Rezpiral’s small scale allows for the advocacy of diversity on different levels, from supporting the autonomy of producers & their continued production of artisanal mezcals to the preservation of local land control. Rezpiral actively supports master artisan’s proactive planting and management of agave; recollecting and incubating seeds, transplanting and farming diverse species of endemic agave in sustainable ways. Rezpiral directs 10% of earnings back into supporting artisans farming.

Rezpiral has a regional greenhouse to support independent small scale mezcaleros in cultivating and reforesting their lands with local endangered wild agave varietals. They also are highly focused on a cultural and conservation residency program.

tasted blind

nose: anise, very nutty, root beer, grape jam

palate: root beer, coca cola, vanilla, blueberry, some brightness on the finish.

very unctuous, dark, sweet, lovely. probably an 8+ for me. not too complex but really hits all my buttons otherwise.

guess: I think it’s like a 50% puebla mezcal some kind of clay. espadin/espadilla?

reveal: Rezpiral Espadin con Pechuga de Conejo Series 2 (2017) (46%) by Leonardo

wow missed that one by a bit. at least I got the agave right. I consistently guess pechugas are clay distilled. definitely my favorite rezpiral so far
