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.

Distilled April, 2019
300 liter batch
Drinking it October, 2022
Sweet, but some campfire smokiness balances it out. Not a mellow mezcal, it has a nice bite.

Nose – Sugar glazed, lemon poppy seed cake.
Palate – Dark chocolate pudding. Clay. A nice slippery, mouthfeel. Packs a hot punch and great flavor for 46% ABV. Dry, ashy finish. The dark chocolate/clay notes stick around well into the aftertaste.
Only a 1 oz sample that went way too soon. Great stuff!
2018. Series 3. Complex aromas: spearmint, moringa, vanilla bean, clove, and oak ash. The palate has some ash as well, with additional notes of watermelon, kiwi, charcoal, grilled asparagus, and black pepper.
Series 4 48%abv
Nose – bitter dark chocolate, banana, plantain
Palate – funky, peppery, fresh and vegetal, nuts
Finish – earth, clay
1 ounce sample. Sometimes Mezcals remind me of a certain place or time in my life. When I tasted this Mezcal I was brought back to my childhood in India where we would buy fresh peanuts from a vender who roasted them to order in hot sand then wrapped them in newspaper. I couldn’t really separate the notes from my memory and my one ounce sample was gone way too soon. This is definitely a nutty Mezcal. I love it.
